DescriptionGemstone: Sunstone - 22.13 Cts.
Dust Devil Mine
Plush, Lake Co.
This sizable Sunstone hails from the top locality for the type. Dust Devil Mine material is some of the most coveted when it comes to Sunstone due to the natural Copper inclusions. This large 22+ carat pear shaped cabochon has a medium dome and has been named "The Flame." The stone lights up with an alluring peachy-pink body color which is further accented by red "stripe" schiller inclusions. This stone should be viewed in person to appreciate the full impact of these Copper inclusions. This gemstone has been cut and polished on all faces. There are some non-visible irregularities on the reverse side. Overall, this Sunstone cabochon is in excellent condition and visually striking.
Measurements: 23.34 x 15.24 x 9.06 mm, 22.13 cts.
Provenance: The Jena Blue Collection
Estimate: $3,000 - $5,000.
