Quite surprising in person, we were very impressed
to actually see an Iolite with a discernable 4-ray star. Likely one of the
species where asterism is rarest, we have never before had one of these.
Furthermore, with the large size and deep violet-blue color the star is actually
fairly moderate in intensity, which is hugely impressive. Very interesting
and gemologically interesting, this is a rarity.
