0.42ct Kornerupine - A Collector's Gemstone



Oh, you pretty little kornerupine! While most kornerupine material is pretty ugly in dark muddy browns, yellows, and olive colors, this little stone shines in this very rare crisp color! Stones of this prized color are usually found in the Kwale District of Kenya, and the size is pretty typical. Stones from Kenya are rarely over 3 carats before faceting, so this is a very prized find at 0.42ct with such a great color and clarity. You'll notice some inclusions in this stone, which are totally expected and are most likely zircon or apatite crystals.

  • Dimension: 4.25mm x 3.03mm

  • Source: While the exact source is not known, the kornerupine material of this color is usually found in Kenya.

It helps lift our spirits and helps us determine where our problems lie so we can take action. Kornerupine helps enlighten and focus our minds and even helps prevent mental breakdowns. This is a great stone for those of us who are trying to overcome obstacles to bring out the best of who we are while giving us a calm soothing respite.
