Description:Herderite is only found in a few localities around the world in gem quality crystals. The species is technically Hydroxylherderite, but in the gem world, everybody calls it Herderite. It is a rare collector gem especially in larger size stones. I have seen faceted Herderites from only a few localities over the years, and they have some of the most unusual colors in the out there. To the best of my knowledge there is only one locality in Pakistan that produces fine gem grade Hederite, and it's GREEN to boot! This stone is nearly eye clean, and has a light bluish-green hue. It has a "Trillion Brilliant" cut, and is a beautiful color for the material.
