0.72 ct. Pyroxmangite
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.
