6.17 ct. Yellow Sardinian Smithsonite
An unusual faceted example of Smithsonite from a
classic source in Sardinia that long ago ceased to produce any faceting
material. The color is unmistakable and very unusual for this mineral. Lovely
and extraordinarily rare - this material was recently featured on the cover of
ExtraLapis series of books. If you view the stone in strong
transmitted light you can see the classic color-banding of this mineral.
