One of the few ways left of reasonably obtaining a gemmy Benitoite of this size. These are actually fairly unusual, we rarely see any of this quality - lots of off-color examples. This one has excellent, consistent color and a nice polish - a bit of Crossite matrix showing at the surface, nothing too distracting.
