3.16ct Emerald Cut Gem Quality Rhodonite (Extremely Rare)

$790.00

This is a great stone for those who are after a really gemmy piece of rhodonite with stunning, strong colour. It has big, bright flashes and though included, it is just more of a light haze that is visible to the eye. This really is a stunning collectors piece for those who appreciate gemmology and the rarity of material like this.


This material was mined in Brazil as a by product of a manganese mine, normally you could never justify the time and money it would take to retrieve this amazing quality of rhodonite given that it has been brought up from a depth of 1.5km underground. This also means that no additional land was excavated to retrieved it as it is simply a by-product of the manganese mining.
