Item Description

Pezzottaite is a fairly new Cesium bearing Beryl species discovered in Madagascar over 10 years ago. It is definitely one of the most rare and beautiful gems on the market today. This material was originally thought to be a variety of Beryl, but now stands as its own species. This material has one of the most unique colors in the gem world with a very rich intense distinctive pink which truly doesn't resemble any other gem. This is a beautiful stone with a lively pink color and a "Step Oval" cut. This gem has slight inclusions, but does have clean gem areas. The supply of Pezzottaite seems to have dwindled to virtually nothing in the past few years, and the price of the top stones is on the rise. Fine quality Pezzottaite retails for as much as $2000 per carat. A great rare gem for the collector, and nearly impossible to replace on the market now.
