3.50 ct. 'Sunstone' Iolite with Hematite

Color:  Dark Violetish-Blue Clarity:  Heavily Included (Hematite only)
Origin:  E. Africa Cut:  Square Step
Treatments:  None Measurements:  10.6 x 10.3 mm

If you watch the site regularly, you may know that we have been able to offer a few of these fascinating gems from a relatively recent and new find of facet grade material.  The stones join together the distinctive violet-blue of Iolite with reflective platelets of hematite.  This is a gorgeous example; the color of the Iolite is great, the platelets are oriented superbly well and the size would be very easy to use.  The reflected colors are quite dazzling - given what we have seen with output and general quality, this gem is likely to remain one of the very best of its type.
