Here is a stunning Sphalerite! This gem is a fiery orange with flashes of yellow color that are vibrant. The clarity of this stone is excellent for Sphalerite, which tends to have significant inclusions. Spain is renowned for its beautiful yellow, orange and red colors of Sphalerite that have not been found in significant quantity from any other locality. The mine has been closed for many years now, and these beauties are a dwindling treasure. Sphalerite is one of the more difficult gems to facet because of its softness, cleavage and brittle nature. So to have such a bright polish and sharp facets is practically special. The cut is Ruination, a variation of a round cut, and was designed by Arya Akhavan. This gemstone was faceted by Allyce Kosnar of Kosnar Gem Co. during Match 2020. Enjoy!
