    Description

    Gemstone: Quartz & Fluorite - 103.65 Cts.
    Miandrivazo
    Menabe
    Madagascar

    This unique offering is a fantasy cut gemstone featuring Quartz with mesmerizing Fluorite inclusions. Coming out of Madagascar in the early 2000s, these curiosities are still fascinating. The Fluorite grew a top the Quartz and when the Quartz kept growing it engulfed the colorful Fluorite. This was once a Quartz point which was gemmy enough to be cut into this unique offering. The stone has an elongated prism-like shape with "suspended" purple and white Fluorite crystals. The Fluorite crystals are well-balanced throughout the Quartz, creating a very aesthetic specimen. The face is polished and exhibits step facets, while the back is not fully polished as a few of the Fluorite crystals are surface reaching. The bottom of the gemstone has been cut flat and can sit with need of a base. This one-of-a-kind gemstone is truly fascinating and in good condition.
    Measurements: 60.03 x 16.76 x 9.34 mm, 103.65 cts.

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
