Benitoite matched pairs of any size have all but disappeared from the market.  With the emphasis on producing the largest stones possible (common for such a rare material), pairs were never a top priority among the producers of these.  Now that nearly all the rough capable of producing stones of any size is gone, the scarcity is even more noticeable.  This is a superb pair - a fine, loupe clean and calibrated set for easy use in jewelry.  The color is absolutely top - a really lovely set.  Have a look around, sizable accent pairs are just not available.
