Here for your consideration is an exquisite high grade glowing Gem Chrysoprase slab from Marlboro, Australia hand cut by Lexx. This stunning old stock nickel based chalcedony resembles some of the finest Jadeite in color and quality. The famous Marlborough mines of Australia were completely exhausted by the 1970s' by high-end, luxury jewelers, most notably Van Cleef & Arpels. Collectors and miners who kept some of the finest rough from the 1970's occasionally release some of this amazing rough in the highest quality to the market and we managed to acquire some. Glows when backlit and colors range from aqua to deep green. Mass produced Marlboro Chrysoprase simply does not exist because the stone is so scarce.
Vitreous polish front and back. Slightly included. No visible fractures. Minimal matrix left intact. Quite a collectible!
