Here is something very special!  A cross faceted into a gemstone! 2.98 carat kiwi Green Prasiolite!  Custom faceted into a design called "Angel Cross"  Ron frosted some of the facets in this gem to have a cross appear in the center.  A cross inside a gem.  How different is that!  Prasiolite, is also a green quartz. This gem has also been called Green Amethyst though it is actually Prasiolite - Green Quartz.  Would make a gorgeous Ring or Pendant.  Dark spots in the picture are not in the gemstone, just reflections of the camera lens.  No darkness in this gem only sparkles. Custom faceted by Ron.

Prasiolite or vermarine is a green-colored form of quartz, usually produced by artificially heat-treating amethyst. Since
1950, almost all has come from one small mine in Brazil.

Prasiolite (or praziolite) is a light to medium green variety of quartz. It gets its name from the Greek words "prason" meaning "leek" (the vegetable of this color) and "lithos" meaning "stone." It is sometimes mistaken for peridot or green tourmaline and often referred to as GREEN AMETHYST. It is found, in increasingly smaller quantities, in Brazil and the U.S. (Arizona). It ranks a durable 7 on Mohs' hardness scale.

Wonderful addition to your gemstone collection if you seek the more UNIQUE gemstone.
