Here is a unique rare mineral offering. If you dont believe me search for others on etsy and ebay. I was surprised by how few I actually found. Nearly all specimens are faceted stones and there are not many of the faceted ones either. Below I have compiled some info from online to help describe this rare treasure.
Below info was copied from the website gemsociety org website.....
"Interestingly, sinhalite, though quite rare, occurs in large sizes in the Sri Lankan gravels. The normal range is 1-20 carats, but gems over 100 carats have been found from time to time."
