Item Description

Ekanite is an extremely rare gem, and is relatively "new" to the gem world as it was only discovered a little over 50 years ago. Ekanite is one of the few radioactive gems as it contains Uranium and Thorium content. Nonetheless, these gems are highly sought after by collectors. Most Ekanites are brown in color, but this gem has an obvious green color. This stone is nearly eye clean with a lovely "Marquise" cut.
