0.36 ct. New York Hexagonite

Color:  Medium Dark Purple Clarity:  Slightly Included
Origin:  Balmat, New York Cut:  Round Brilliant
Treatments:  None Measurements:  4.4 mm

A really remarkably fine example of this classic American rarity.  Hexagonite is the vivid purple variety of the mineral Tremolite, a notoriously difficult to facet collector's gem.  The miniscule deposits around Balmat, New York that produced a few faceted stones have long been mined out.  Very clean for the material, fantastic (perfect!) color and a simply amazing full round brilliant.  An absolutely top quality example of this great rarity.
