2.87 ct. Australian 'Rainbow Lattice' Moonstone
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!
