0.49 ct. Colorless Benitoite

Color:  Colorless Clarity:  Slightly Included
Origin:  San Benito Co., California Cut:  Pear Brilliant
Treatments:  None Measurements:  6.5 x 4.2 mm

Having a fondness for this species, we are always on the lookout for unusual examples of gem Benitoite.  And, while we sometimes see very small stones that are completely colorless, we almost never find a colorless Benitoite of this size.  These are cut from the typically very small areas of color zoning that occurs in gem rough.  And there certainly is a distinction to be made - very light blue is fairly common, but those gems that are without any hint of color are rare indeed.  Not perfectly clean, but nothing that breaks up the brilliance to adds any color to the stone.  Quite large for these - the largest we have ever offered in fact -  and very rare as such.
