PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Amazonite, which is a natural turquoise coloured gem Feldspar, is sporadically available from Madagascar. The colour has been decreasing in intensity for a number of years and the material is often hard to get. However, a new section of the deposit has been exposed and the colour intensity quality appears to be rebounding. The material also sometimes has a white banded like colour distribution. The odd piece may have small specular Smokey Quartz like inclusions else small traces of black specular inclusions.

A Brand 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.
