Andalusite from Bahia, Brazil [http://img.irocks.com/new09/RLKG083a.JPG]
Bahia, Brazil
Thumbnail, 14.5 x 8.0 mm ; 4.07 carats
Though Andalusite is well known throughout the gem world, there are very few world localities for fine quality gems. This stone is a virtually eye clean trichroic red, orange and green "Cushion" cut gem. The multicolor pleochroism of Andalusite is distinctive and extremely attractive. It is difficult to find stones in this size with this clarity.

Andalusite from Bahia, Brazil [http://img.irocks.com/new2010/rlkg165a.jpg]
Bahia, Brazil
Thumbnail, 7.9 x 5.0 mm ; 1.32 carats
A wonderful, bright, well-cut, virtually eye clean, trichroic red, orange and green Emerald cut gemstone of Andalusite. The pleochroism of Andalusite is distinctive, attractive and truly helps to easily identify the material. It is difficult to find stones such as this one with great saturation and multi-color display! This is a relatively large stone for this material and is from an old stash of rough from the 1960's.
