Gem grade Triplite (a rare phosphate mineral) is exceptionally scarce and even though we now see a few Pakistani stones from time to time, it is still quite rare to see fine stones in this superb bright orange color.  It is a distinctive and lovely color that is matched by few other species - and one that is lovely in all lighting, see the photos above and below.  Moreover, most are small and included, so this one is certainly special; the cutting and size are excellent and the gem is eye clean, something that can be said for very, very few of these.  Great collector's gem and not easily sourced.  With a cert from GIT to accompany the stone.
