The quintessentially rare species, Poudretteite was named for the family who operated an operation at the Mont Saint-Hilaire deposit, where it was first discovered.  Since then there has been nothing more than a trickle of stones out of Burma to tempt the rare stone market.  This lovely stone is an outstanding example of Poudretteite, cut to the correct angles (always scarce on such a rarity) and completely eye clean - just two tiny needles visible under magnification.  Moreover, this is a very respectable size for a stone of this quality - as with many of the very rarest materials, small and heavily included is the norm.  One of the trophies of gem collecting and extremely nice.  With GIT mini cert as well.
