RAINBOW LATTICE SUNSTONE.
This is one of Australia's most unique gemstone found in 1985 in the harts range Northern territory. When mined the stone has natural fractures so the best cut is a long rectange.
This stone has the play of colour on both sides.
This is a natural stone that has been stabilised with opticon.
There may be some pitting in the stone as we concetrated on the amazing pattern this stone has. great in any collection.
The lattice display is very directional
Its a mixture of feldspar predominately moonstone with limenite and triangles which have a stunning display of iridescent rainbow .Most specimens also have hematite[sunstone] and a moon stone effect , Adularescence.
The GIA indentified it and declared it as a new gem variety in 1989
Colour change is definitely there on one angle as the site pictures shown don't do justice- just as gemmy as expected, damn. Fast shipping as always, would order again!
