Refractive Index: 1.577-1.583
Colors: Bluish Green to Green
Reminiscent of a Tropical Rainforest,
I'm often recognized for my lush color.
A mineral rich growth environment plus traces of vanadium & chromium produce my green color as well as often visible inclusions ; a natural part of my growth.
* Its pretty rare to find me clean
and oil treatment is often necessary
for the maintenance of my beauty!
One of the most important value
factors is the saturation of my color.
Columbia & the country of Zambia are locations for my natural growth.
I require a little extra TLC (tender-loving-care) if Im going to be worn in a piece of Jewelry, especially when it comes to cleaning!
