6.17 ct. Yellow Sardinian Smithsonite

Color:  Medium Yellow Clarity:  Semi-Translucent
Origin:  Monteponi Mine, Iglesias, Sardinia Cut:  Pear Mixed
Treatments:  None Measurements:  13.3 x 9.5 mm

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 the popular ExtraLapis series of books.  If you view the stone in strong transmitted light you can see the classic color-banding of this mineral.
