Without a doubt, the single finest faceted specimen of this notoriously difficult species that we have ever seen.  The vast majority of faceted gems of this unusual phosphate mineral are so heavily included as to be opaque and fractured - indeed, they are among the least attractive of all species.  This gem falls into that other .01% of material - it is bright, attractive and simply beautiful.  If you know the species, the beauty is instantly magnified many times in light of its rarity.

Furthermore, the gem is a respectable size and has been given a fully professional cut and polish.  Beyond rare and easily a once-a-decade stone at the very least.
