5.47 ct. Russian Datolite

Color:  Colorless Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Dal'Negorsk, Russia Cut:  Oval Mixed
Treatments:  None Measurements:  12.1 x 10 mm

Gem quality Datolite is extremely uncommon - for years being encountered only as small gems from the area around Westfield, Massachusetts.  When the superb mineral specimens starting coming out of Dal'Negorsk, Russia, Datolite was among those species available - a situation which also provided some gem rough  These have become difficult gems to find now as much of this material was found many years ago - they are exceptionally brilliant stones when completely clean, as this stone is.  Extremely fine Russian cutting and very large for a clean example of the species - a simply superb stone that would have been unthinkable in the species before the Russian finds.  Now very difficult to source.
