COMMENTS:

Here is a very spectacular & rare green Kornerupine Cat's Eye where the gem rough was mined from either Phulbani or Patnagarh in the Orissa State of India. This gem has an spectacular green color tone with an exceptional face up cat's eye effect and a very gemmy eye appeal. Kornerupine is a rare gemstone and an equally rare mineral specimen. Kornerupine is generally considered to be a collector's stone. The emerald green varieties are highly sought-after, and are the most valuable Kornerupine color. Kornerupine Cat's Eye displays an amazing phenomena known as chatoyancy, also known in the gem trade as “the cat's eye effect”. The reason for this fascinating phenomenon is very fine inclusions within the stone. When a light source is directed on these inclusions a bright strip of light appears, running perpendicular to the inclusions.

That said, I am offering this absolutely beautiful emerald green Kornerupine for a great price, so that you may add it to your collection or even mount it in a jewelry piece. Being that Kornerupine has a hardness of 6.5 - 7 on the Mohs' Scale of Hardness, it is durable enough for daily wear.

Happy shopping! We are not new in the gem trade or auctioneering. We offer all natural gemstones, gem carvings, & facet/cab/specimen grade gem rough, with full disclosure of any enhancements known. We also offer excellent service in all aspects, secure packaging, and fast shipping. You will not be disappointed with this very fine gem!! Please realize that colors can slightly differ from monitor to monitor or with change of lighting (natural, fluorescent, full spectrum, or incandescent).
