    Gemstone: Zincite - 33.13 Cts.
    Silesian Voivodeship

    This interesting offering is of a synthetic Zincite gemstone. This cut specimen represents a rare variety, and commonly, cut stones of this variety are a by-product of Zinc metal extraction due to unique environmental conditions in a particular smokestack. The name Zincite is derived from its principal component - Zinc. This fine example displays a highly saturated, rich orangish-red hue with intense luster. The heavy stone weighs 33.13 carats, making it quite dense for its size, and features a well-cut pear shape with mixed cut facets. This gemstone also glows bright green under long-wave ultraviolet light. It is quite difficult to cut and facet this material, making this gorgeous example that much more appealing. Beautiful examples such as this are relatively few and far between.
    Measurements: 20.93 x 16.10 x 10.97 mm, 33.13 cts.
