    RARE GEMSTONE: SCAPOLITE - 14.88 CT.
    Tanzania

    To think that Scapolite originated from the metamorphic process and was first discovered in 1913 in the Mogok Stone Tract of upper Burma (Myanmar) does not elicit an immediate reaction. Scapolites in general are lesser-known gemstones and not widely available, but large gemstones show why they are desirable. This fine example exhibits great transparency and is essentially eye clean. This light to medium golden yellow gem is an excellent trillion, which is well polished. Only a truly talented gem cutter could achieve this excellent custom cut and polish. It is a brilliant gemstone and in very good condition.
    Measurements: 16.5 x 16.5 x 11.2 mm, 14.88 cts.
    Offered at no reserve.

    Provenance: Fallbrook Gem & Mineral Society Gem Collection
