Yellow-orange sphalerite stone
Yellow-orange sphalerite stone 27.80 ct
An excellent specimen of the rare mineral sphalerite, yellow-orange in color. The stone weighs 27.80 carats. The stone was mined at the Aliva deposit in Spain. This lot is a very effective representative of sphalerite, the high dispersion is revealed in full thanks to a fancy cut with an unusual arrangement of edges.
Sphalerites are respected and highly valued by the world gemological community, despite their low hardness, which limits their use in jewelry, since it is not easy to fix such a stone.
