A lovely example of this very scarce variety of gem Herderite.  The gem is very bright and the lovely green-yellow color is quite distinctive.  Moreover, while most of these tend to be somewhat 'native' cuts, this is a finely done round brilliant with an excellent polish.  The limited find of this material occurred several years ago near Ouro Verde in the state of Minas Gerais - it was written up in the Spring 2004 issue of GIA's Gems and Gemology.  Lovely rarity in a fine, approachable size.
