DescriptionRare Gemstone: Scapolite var. Marialite - 21.51 Ct.
Of the various hues exhibited by Scapolite, the violet variet is probably the most attractive. Mpwapwa is a prime source for the better quality of this uncommon gem material. The location is about 130 km WNW of the bustling metropolis of Morogoro, Tanzania. The Marialite rough was found in 1979 and it went from there to Bangkok to be cut into the pear shape seen today. Under shortwave ultraviolet the eye clean-stone shows a deep red fluorescence. This stone is in excellent condition and has amazing brilliance and luster.
