One of the most outstanding newer materials that we have seen in recent years. Not only are these inclusion stones of the highest order - the geometric patterns form by the hematite are both dramatic and beautifully contrasted. But, what really sets this material apart though is that the gem being included in orthoclase feldspar - that is to say, 'Moonstone' with its full adularescent qualities intact. So you have this great looking piece that can surprise when rotated - the billowy effect of Moonstone flashing across the surface. So great, we wish these were more readily available, but they are very hard to source - particularly in sizes over 3 carats. This is absolute top quality for the material, totally free from any fractures or visible cleavage. This one is a stunner!
