Copper in Scapolite

Marvelous mixed cut cushion Copper in Scapolite from Tanzania⁠

This is such a treat! This is a pale 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.

Incredible rare collector's gem!⁠
