This is a NEW FIND of what we believe is Iolite coming from Afghanistan. This is a very bright almost deep pastel or neon purple color. From what we are hearing there is a very limited amount of this being produced and the pieces tend to be small. This lot is great for some commercial cutting and the color is not that overly dark African or Indian color. There is a lot of fire in these stones which range in size from around .25 to 7+ carats. There are a few partial crystallizations in here but nothing really worthwhile for the specimen collector. This is severely discounted in price as we got it at a bargain. We don't see too much of this material coming in any time soon so don't let this pass you by.
