This is a superb world class gemstone! It is from the famous Pederneira Tourmaline Mine in Brazil. Rhodochrosite is a rare occurrence from this mine and facet grade material is extraordinarily rare. This stone is one of the best, if not the best Rhodochrosite gemstones to come from South America. The stone honestly belongs in a museum and is some of the best quality Rhodochrosite in the world. This quality is on par with the best from the Sweet Home mine in Colorado, which is great praise. The stone actually shows dispersion under certain light conditions, which flashes of green and blue throughout the stone. The clarity is superb for the mineral species and is just water clear. This stone is extraordinarily difficult to replace, and there have only been a hand full of these gems ever from Pederneira. This stone is a true centerpiece for any gemstone collection and is breathtaking in person. Enjoy!
