DescriptionGemstone: Sunstone - 6.26 Cts.
Dust Devil Mine
Plush, Lake Co.
Sunstone material from Oregon is arguably some of the best on the market. This fabulous gemstone is a prime example. The rough was a very gemmy and glassy specimen that was then expertly cut and faceted into this fine offering. This 6+ carat stone features a fashionable modern cushions shape with brilliant facets. The gem is accented further by Copper inclusions, which give the stone an additional color boost and flash. These Copper platelets are known as schiller and add a pleasing burnt red hue. When cut, zones devoid of color become visible adding extra scintillation to the already vibrant gemstone. This quality stone from the Dust Devil Mine is in pristine condition.
Measurements: 12.05 x 11.32 x 8.53 mm, 6.26 cts.
Provenance: The Jena Blue Collection
Estimate: $2,500 - $3,500.
