"Top Top Material "

27.9ct. Dodoma Tanzania Gem Imperial Chrysoprase Carved Turtle, Australia was the largest source in the world for natural non-dyed green Chrysoprase. But years of mining have depleted most of the known pockets of material. A major vein was discovered in Dodoma Tanzania about 6 years ago and today is producing most of the worlds best material. A limited amount comes to market due to the fact that only small scale miners work the vein using crude local tools. This is the reason that the material continues to be scarce and expensive. Dyed material is becoming more prevalent in the market today. This is of course totally natural and free of any dying. This also is carved from the Imperial variety which is the most expensive of the grades. Stunning color and translucent and among the finest. Rich Bright Green translucent and free of any major flaws. 19.4 x 25.3 x 11.9mm .
