Gems and Jewelry, 5.0 x 2.6 mm; 0.15 carats
Dumortierite is a rather rare gem, and is only found in a few world localities in facettable material. This stone is from a lesser known locality in Madagascar. The color of this stone is a light smoky blue shade, and is very slightly included with a "Pear" cut. I've only seen a few of these stones over the years, and rarely are they completely eye clean, even in smaller stones. This gem is a great rarity indeed, and would make a brilliant additional to any rare stone suite.
