Item Description

Prismatine is a rare sorosilicate mineral, only found in about TEN localities in the world, and almost NEVER in gem quality material. This stone is from a new discovery in Tanzania, and is the first one we've ever had to offer in the auctions. It's a remarkable, beautiful pastel green (with a slight bluish overtone) color gem, and it's also clean and bright to boot, with virtually no inclusions that I can see with the naked eye. Keep in mind that crystals of Prismatine are often kind of a brown or grey hue and almost always translucent at best, so to have a gem with a wonderful and pleasing color along with excellent optic clarity is a big deal. If you collect rare stones, this is an important opportunity to get your hands on something that is virtually unseen in today's market. Don't miss out, we only have this gem to offer in the auctions, and I don't know if we will get more going forward.
