Awesome NEW FIND of ULTRA RARE Vibrant Silver to White AFGHAN Petalite Faceting Rough. This is not found very frequently in Afghanistan and/or Pakistan and we were lucky to pick up a few large pieces that we have been sawing to be able to offer the Facet Rough we can extract. There is not a whole heck of a lot!

The lot is running roughly 60% High to Top Facet Grade while the remainder is mostly Low to Medium Facet Grade. Most stones do have some minor inclusions at the least as seems to be the case for most of the material we purchased; however, much of this material is very gemmy and even though not all stones will cut eye-clean many should still face up very nice.

This material is rarely available from Afghanistan as Facet Rough and it is great for the rarity and origin collectors! We don't have much of this and we don't know how long it will be before we secure some more so don't miss out on the parcel!
