Description
~ Pietersite cab ~

Offered here is an extraordinary cabochon of pietersite, from Namibia. This example was cut from old stock African pietersite, and exhibits a velvety beauty all its own. It has dark midnight blue chatoyance, with a golden orange flame pattern rising up from the pointed end. This is some of the very first pietersite I ever acquired, a couple decades ago, or thereabout. Very heavily silicated, extra hard, and it began taking a polish while I was still in the shaping grits. The stone has a well rounded dome of 6mm, a bold designer shape, and a fine glassy polish both front and back. And my per carat price of well below $2 is a steal for a stone of this size and quality!

Size: 48x20mm
Weight: approximately 40 carats
