A significant US rarity - Augelite from California's Champion Mine.  Prior to this find, there had been no such thing as facet grade pieces of this rare phosphate mineral.  Subsequently there have been a few finds elsewhere, most notable some rare greenish material from Peru that came out several years ago.  California Augelites were always rare and now have all bust disappeared - we have only very rarely seen any offered.  The cutting is excellent and the stone is bright with a pleasing level of brilliance.  A respectable size for gems from this locale as well.  It almost goes without saying that this is the only one of these we have!
