Item Description

This is one of the only pieces of this material that I have seen. It is a remarkable "inclusion" gem as it features beautiful golden Rutile needles inside of a lovely pink Kunzite gem. Typically, Kunzite is not known for inclusions, and it is my understanding that these gems are relatively new to the market. The find of this material was quite limited, and I have only seen a handful of gems of this material. This "Emerald" cut stone would be a good sized Kunzite gem, but these attractive needles of Rutile make it all the more desirable. This stone was very difficult to photograph, and it truly looks more attractive in person, so don't miss out on this superb stone with an unlikely association.
