    Gemstone: Cuprite - 23.33 Cts.

    This faceted Cuprite is from Namibia, which is a top locality for the type. The incredible stone has an intense blood-red hue and a mesmerizing metallic luster. This unique luster is caused by Copper metal oxidizing and appears as a metallic finish on the faceted stone. The stone has been expertly cut and features a classic round shape with brilliant facets and weighs 23.33 carats. There is only one small nick to the culet, which is impressive due to the soft nature of this material. The stone is undoubtedly one-of-a-kind and will round out any gem collection. It is in overall great condition.
    Measurements: 15.15 x 9.91 mm, 23.33 cts.
