Chrysoprase with dendritic inclusions
$500.00 ex. GST
Cut in the traditional tablet style (front and back parallel) with a generous bevelled edge, designed to accentuate the floral like inclusions of manganese dendrites within a super rich coloured chrysoprase. The rough material for this suite of gems is sourced from the deserts of the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia, not far from Kalgoorlie.
This variety of crypto-crystalline quartz takes a super fine polish that is unimpeded by the dendritic inclusions. The fine open fissures are a normal feature of this gem material and have been there since formation of the gem rough, allowing the manganese to penetrate the chrysoprase. Other ‘naturals’ (e.g. colour zoning and matrix) are left to present authenticity to the product as a whole, and in part reflect the provenance of the gem rough.
