2.01 ct. New Jersey Franklinite

Color:  Black Clarity:  Opaque
Origin:  Franklin, New Jersey Cut:  Custom Step
Treatments:  None  Measurements:  7.5 x 5.5 mm

Another first for us - we have seen Franklinite worked as a cab material before, but a faceted example is certainly something new.  It is completely opaque of course, yet the luster is quite attractive and extra care in cutting really shows - it is actually an appealing little stone.  Franklinite is a member of the Spinel group and is named for its famed type locality in New Jersey.  A gemological curiosity to be sure.
