- Gems and Jewelry, 7.6 x 5.9 mm; 1.66 carats
Herderite is only found in a few localities around the world in gem quality crystals. It is a rare collector gem especially in larger size stones. I have seen quite a few faceted Herderites over the years, and they have some of the most unusual colors in the gem world. This stone is slightly included, and has a light silvery-lilac hue. It has a Rectangle cut, and is a lovely color for this material.
