Origin:  Santander, Spain Cut:  Oval Portuguese

A large and well finished example of this now quite popular stone from the 'rare gem' category.  These are very brilliant stones and have an intense color, so you simply want to use them in some sort of jewelry, but alas, with a hardness of 3 1/2 it just simply isn't possible.  They do make dazzling additions to the collection though as they have very high optical properties. A good size and flawless example with a dominant orange hue and just a touch of yellow zoning visible - the classic look for so many of the crystals of this mineral.
