|Origin: Near Ouro Verde, Minas Gerais, Brazil||Cut: Round Brilliant|
|Treatments: None||Measurements: 8 mm|
A lovely example of this very scarce variety of gem Herderite. The gem is very bright and the lovely green-yellow color is quite distinctive. Moreover, while most of these tend to be somewhat 'native' cuts, this is a finely done round brilliant with an excellent polish. The limited find of this material occurred several years ago near Ouro Verde in the state of Minas Gerais - it was written up in the Spring 2004 issue of GIA's Gems and Gemology. Lovely rarity in a fine, approachable size.
