PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

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, with only a small fraction of material being polished all over. Often sides or a single face is left natural with semi crystalline botryoidal like structures. Occasionally we do get slices and other polished forms but these are exceptionally rare due to the nature of the material itself. This is exclusively mined in Zimbabwe and we polish it ourselves. Unusually beautiful. Price is grade dependent. Items are as shown.
