Cut in Vermont by Scott Maier @travelersgems

A fine and well saturated elongated Hex Cut Montana, Unheated and Untreated. Color is predominantly Purple but Shifts towards Blue outdoors, and there are hints of Green to be seen. This one reminds just a bit of a Tanzanite, but much more durable of course. Mined responsibly by a small, family-run mine outside Helena, MT.
