Product Description

A colourless Quartz gemstone from Minas Gerais, Brazil with an attractive inclusion scene.

Suspended within the transparent Quartz are a plane of orange-yellow disc-like forms.
These are the oxidised remnants of Pyrite crystal platelets, once metallic discs but which corroded during the growth cycle of the host Quartz, leaving the ghosts of the original Pyrite, their form and (in some of the inclusions)  ridged surface details visible under magnification.
Some thin-film iridescence is also visible when the stone is tilted in the light.(images 4 and 5).

weight:  12.25 carats
shape:   Emerald cut with over-sized table facet
dimensions:   16.52 x 14.16 x 7.53 mm
treatment:  None
