Description
~ Pietersite cab ~

Offered here is an extraordinary cabochon of pietersite, from Africa. This one's an unusual example of old stock African pietersite, with a singular velvety beauty all its own. It has a striped pattern, something I have not seen before in any variety of pietersite, and the light blue bands wrap around the cab's shape most attractively. Itís cut from some of the very first pietersite I ever acquired, couple decades ago, or just about. Very heavily silicated, showing many areas of translucence. This example is extra hard, and began taking a polish while I was still in the shaping grits. It has a well rounded dome of 6mm, an elegant designer drop shape, and a fine glassy polish both front and back. And my per carat price of well below $3 is a steal for a stone of this size and quality!

Size: 53x26mm
Weight: approximately 40 carats
