Item Description

Hauyne is one of the most sought after rare gems on the market today. The material belongs to the Sodalite group, but most species in this group rarely occur in such intense color stones like Hauyne. Obviously, the color is what attracts collectors, and the scarcity of the material makes for incredibly high prices per carat. These stones are often very small, and gems over 1 carat are next to impossible to obtain. In fact, a stone weight 0.50 carats is pretty significant. This little gem is a beautiful electric royal blue color stone that is only very slightly included and has an "Oval" cut on it. Virtually all the facet grade Hauyne in the world comes from the Eifel Mts in Germany where is forms in basic vulcanism rocks. A very rare stone with a tremendously beautiful color worthy of any collection, and good deal at only $50 starting bid.
