Item Description

Everybody is probably familiar with this material, but have you seen how these gems have sky-rocketed in popularity recently? I have seen some European gem and jewelry dealers who are SELLING this material for $100 per carat, and it is flying off the shelves. It seems to have found a niche in the European market, and buyers and dealers alike are scooping these gems up as fast as they can find them. I honestly have always liked these gems, but now they are becoming more difficult for me to purchase. This stone is essentially a colorless Quartz "Pear Cabochon" cut stone, but it features reddish Goethite / Hematite "needles". With the high prices being paid for these gems, they will more than likely always stay at a high value from now on, so do not miss your chance to scoop up this top great stone for a good price.
