Item Description

Clinohumite is rarely seen in gem material, and until recently the only good stones we had seen were coming out of Tajikistan. Recently there was a very limited discovery of some fine gem grade Cliohumite at the Marble Occurrence in Morogoro, Tanzania. Only a handful of nice stones have been floating around the market, and virtually all of them were scooped up by collectros. This is the first stone of this material that we've ever had to offer. It's different from the material from Tajikistan as it is lighter in color, with more of a golden-yellow hue than orange. This stone has a "brilliant trillion" cut with very very slight inclusions. A fantastic collector's stone from an incredibly hard to find locality. If you collect rare gems or stones from unusual locales, do not pass this one up for a great price.
