Phosphosiderite cab 3/14 - 01 - Excellent Pendant sized gem.
x 18 x 7.9 mm - 48 carat - $15.00

Phosphosiderite. This material is a new find currently being mined in Chile. The color is very much like sugilite. It is known as " piedrea voga" or " pink stone" as well as "la rosa voca" or "pink rock". This material is stabilized and cuts very nicely with an exceptional luster. It is either solid purple or has yellow gold veins. I'm certain you'll like it. :)
