Polished Mtorolite Emerald Chrysoprase Slices x 3 From Mutorashanga, Zimbabwe

R 929.00 ZAR
'Chrome chalcedony (Mtorolite) is similar in appearance to the better known chrysoprase, but differs in that whilst chrome chalcedony is coloured by chromium, Mtorolite is coloured by nickel and may also contain tiny black specks of chromite. The material occurs in complex plate like deposits with specimens often appearing etched like. The Mtorolite supplied by Toprock tends to have been polished on the one side and left natural with semi crystalline botryoidal like structures on the natural side. However this is a batch of polished slices which do NOT come up very often! This is exclusively mined in Zimbabwe and we polish it ourselves. Unusually beautiful. Price is grade dependent. Items are as shown.
