Product Description

These wonderful Astrophyllite Cabochons are very rare – it’s mined in the Kola Peninsular in Russia and has been sourced just for our wonderful Chalmers Gems customers!

Each pack contains 3 pieces of this precious gem and weighs between 20-35grams.

The photos don’t really do it justice because when you hold them in the light the star-like crystals catch the light and show a beautiful coppery red colour.

This close up image of one of the cabochons shows the crystals a bit better, in the darker stones the crystals are more compact. This is not a stock image – this could actually be your gemstone!

The name comes from the Greek “star leaf” in allusion to its habit of starburst-like sprays & micaceous cleavage (a term for you gemstone enthusiasts!).

It was named by the German chemist, geologist and mineralogist Carl Johan August Theodor Scheerer 1854 and has been embellishing jewellery and adornments for many, many years.

All weights, counts and sizes are approximate.
