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.  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 in such high quality, but they are very hard to source.
