3.06 ct. Thorite

Color:  Dark Green Clarity:  Moderately Included
Origin:  Burma Cut:  Pear Mixed
Treatments:  None Measurements:  7.8 x 8 mm

A faceted rarity indeed.  Thorite, along with Ekanite and Monazite, is one of the few gem species with the distinction of being mildly radioactive.  So, clearly NOT a jewelry stone!  This very deep green transparent material comes sporadically out of the Mogok area in Burma - they are faceted as curiosities and are almost never available.  A fine larger example with an actually very pleasant color - with GIT mini cert as well.
