4.00 ct. Pollucite

Color:  Colorless Clarity:  Eye Clean to Slightly Included
Origin:  Afghanistan Cut:  Oval Brilliant
Treatments:  None Measurements:  12.5 x 9.4 mm

Historically, gem grade Pollucite is exceptionally rare. Prior to the find that produced this stone, any and all facet grade material came from small fragments from either Maine or Connecticut.  This is a lovely example of this Zeolite group mineral, well cut and bright - these are starkly colorless and quite attractive as such.  If you look closely, you may notice one or two small 'snowball' type inclusions - these are classic for the species.  A rare species and quite interesting stone for the cost.
