Copper in Scapolite

Stunning mixed cut cushion Copper in Scapolite from Tanzania⁠

This is such a treat! This is a yellow Scapolite, of the kind that is well known from East Africa, but with inclusions of copper. The result is a gem that is visually similar to the schiller Sunstones (Feldspar) from Oregon - the inclusions give the gem an attractive coppery red flash when the light hits at the right angle. Fabulous rare collector's gem!⁠

From a very limited find. We sourced a small parcel a few months back and have not been offered any since.
