0.72 ct. Pyroxmangite

Color:  Medium Dark Red Clarity:  Slightly Included
Origin:  Minas Gerais, Brazil Cut:  Freeform Step
Treatments:  None Measurements:  7.9 x 4.1 mm

Pyroxmangite is the very rare polymorph (that is to say, the same formula but forming in a different environment) of the mineral Rhodonite.  Gemmy crystals are documented at just a few localities worldwide and we were immediately attracted to the fine, gemmy appeal of this example.  The color is outstanding, but the clarity and cutting are much above what we usually see - it actually allows the connoisseur to appreciate the optical qualities of these.
