Andalusite and Diamond Halo Ring in 14kt Yellow Gold
Andalusite may be a stone that is new to you, so welcome to the party! Andalusite is named from Andalusia, Spain, where it was first discovered. You may be familiar with the chiastolite variety of andalusite which has a cross-formation through the middle of the crystal formed of black or brown clay and/or carbonaceous material which is often graphite.
This specific stone is gem-quality andalusite and you'll see in the photos and videos that it has amazing colors of brown, gold, and orange, all peeking out as the stone move in the light. The emerald cut, or the cut-corner rectangular step-cut, allows these flashes of color to be big and impressive!
Andalusite offers the wearer balance in their life. It allows us to see our lives and our paths clearly without arguing about what we discover. Many people find andalusite helpful when trying to remember things but also look at all sides of a situation.
This andalusite is a 1.01ct emerald cut set in a 14k yellow gold halo ring with 52 diamonds totaling 0.49ct total weight. It is a size 6.25 but can be easily sized.
