DANBURITE6 - Danburite rough and cut
$ 375.00 NET
San Luis Potosi, Mexico
small cabinet - 5.5 x 2.5 x 1.9 cm

Danburite is found in a Tin Mine in Mexico. The miners that bring them out are apparently quite rough with them, as 98% of all the crystals are dinged. The crystal's termination is pristine, overall it is in good shape. It is roughly thumb size. It has a light pink cast to it.

The stone was faceted by Michael Davis, a well known american cutter. It weighs over 12.5 carats, it is a clean (flawless) stone that is extraordinarily bright due to its emerald cushion cut, and the fact that Danburite has a higher refractory index than diamond. I find good danburite rough once every few years, then I give it to Mike to cut beautiful stones. I then find a matching crystal that is in good condition. The stone would retail for between $40 and $60 per carat ($625 value).
