7.56 ct. Argentinean Rhodochrosite

Color:  Medium Slightly Orangish-Pink Clarity:  Semi-Transparent
Origin:  Argentina Cut:  Custom Shield
Treatments:  None Measurements:  13.5 x 11.8 mm

Despite the amount of cab grade Rhodochrosite (the classic banded material) that comes from Argentina, it is quite uncommon to find a stone of sufficient transparency and such a 'gemmy' nature that it can be faceted.  This gem is a remarkable example of just such an Argentinean gem - large, bright and nearly completely transparent.  Stones like this diffuse the ambient light and present a glow (as opposed to a sharp brilliance) that is quite attractive.  Outstanding polish and a fine size.  You can see some zoning in the harsh light of our photos - these are not flaws, simple variations in the translucency of the material - they are not apparent in-hand.
