2.87 ct. Australian 'Rainbow Lattice' Moonstone

Color:  White / Inclusions Clarity:  Translucent
Origin:  Harts Range, Australia Cut:  Oval Cabochon
Treatments:  None Measurements:  10.9 x 8.6 mm

One of the most outstanding newer materials that we have seen in recent years.  Not only are these inclusion stones of the highest order - the geometric patterns form by the hematite are both dramatic and beautifully contrasted.  What really sets this material apart though is that the gem being included in orthoclase feldspar - that is to say, 'Moonstone' with its full adularescent qualities intact.  So you have this great looking piece that can surprise when rotated - the billowy effect of Moonstone flashing across the surface.  So great, we wish these were more readily available, but they are very hard to source - particularly in sizes over 2 carat is the very best quality free from any fractures or visible cleavage.  This one is a stunner!
