An outstanding and unusual example of this rare type. Much more common are the lighter tone ‘minty’ greens, though darker stones are indeed known in the literature and have been shown to also be do to Vanadium as a chromophore. This is an interesting one - think Alexandrite that doesn’t change color and so stays a lovely deeper green. A one-off stone from a Sri Lankan supplier that is perfectly clean and very brilliant - there are zero asymmetries or issues or any kind. Quite lovely.
