Description
~ Seraphinite cab ~

Offered here is a striking cabochon cut from seraphinite, which hails from Russia's Lake Baikal area in eastern Siberia. Seraphinite is technically clinoclore, a gemmy form of chlorite in mica. It strongly reminds me of charoite, another Russian material, though it has beautiful shades of green with radiating fern-like patterns of paler green and silver, rather than purple. Like charoite, it has marked depth and chatoyance, and this one is a splendid example. The stone has a generously high rounded dome of 6.5mm, with a brilliant polish both front and back.

Size: 44x17mm
Weight: approximately 33 carats
