This is such a fascinating material that we set out to find a very large example to serve solely as a showcase for the dramatic 'pink fire' effect.  this stunner was chosen for the density and orientation of the mineral Covellite (the source of the pink flash) that causes the entire table to simply light up when hit with light at the correct angle.  Additionally, we have found that the slightly smoky bodycolor often plays host to the stones with the best effect - you may initially think this color less desirable than the colorless examples, but the color offsets the flash in a way that the colorless examples never do.  Excellent polish and with just one or two light veils (unavoidable in such a large size), there is nothing to take away from reflections of the Covellite.  Outstanding piece and a source of endless fascination for the gem enthusiast - you will be impressed.
