1.8ct Arizona Gem Silica


1.8ct Aqua Blue Arizona Gem Silica, Tablet cut

Cut in Canada by Hans Durstling

6.0 x 4.3 x 11.1 spread x 4.0mm depth

A richly colored Gem Silica from Arizona, in a very fun custom tablet cut by Hans.  This gem has some zoning and visible inclusions, most notably along the bottom where you can see a Greener and more denser patch of Chrysocolla inclusions that give this remarkable form of Chalcedony it’s color.  I have observed some hygroscopicity in this piece, meaning it can become more opaque if exposed to arid environments for prolonged periods.
