Item details

These super white stones are really tricky to photograph because they really wash out the camera, but you must see this one to believe how beautiful it truly is, front, back and sides! The front has a rolling ribbon pattern on the longest side, mixed with some broadflash, and back is super bright fully saturated Pinfire. From the sides you can clearly see all the layers of fire that are creating this beautiful display.

Every once in a great while, I’m offered the opportunity to purchase this extremely rare Brazilian rough from a wonderful seller, and I never pass it up because it only happens about once every 18 months. This last parcel yielded one solid thick piece of 90 Carat stone, plus a few much smaller ones which I have already cut and sold.

For the big piece, I had to make choice to either very carefully slice this amazing rough into two, or keep each piece as one solid stone. So I did both, with some mixed results. This one I kept solid, and it is a really nice chunk that would make a nice solid piece of high end jewelry. It measures 22.5 on the long end, 18 and 20mm on the other two sides, and it is 6mm thick and polished every which way.

I generally ship within one to three days in a padded envelope or box, and I include insurance and tracking and would ask the same for any returns.

PLEASE NOTE that if the actual cost if shipping is less than what you have paid, I will immediately issue a refund, without asking, through Paypal. Frequently the cost is more, and I'm happy to absorb that, but sometimes it's less and I will always give it back.


I accept Direct Checkout or Paypal only, unless I know you. Layaways are a possibility, just ask!

Returns & exchanges

I would be happy to process a full refund via paypal within two weeks provided the item is returned in the exact same condition. Buyer must provide return shipping with insurance and tracking.
