PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Often called Blue Dalmatian Stone! This is a fairly new material from Madagascar which is almost brecciated Quartz / Granite-like matrix which ranges in colour from white to smokey. A percentage of the material with a Quartz matrix has variable gemmy zones with a wide range of blue Spinel spot-like inclusions. The more recent material is closer in appearance to the K2 Afghanite. A very interesting new product line which has up to now only been available in hearts, spheres and most recently standing free forms. Excellent polished finish. Very nice rare new material which has sometimes been called blue Dalmatian Jasper. It has been recently reported that the President of Madagascar has purchased the mine producing this material. Last time this happened, the material exited the market, as in terms of Malagasy law, only the mine owner can sign the paperwork for export. Therefore, it is likely this material will become extremely rare in the very near future. Price is grade dependant. Items are as shown.
