Item arrives in a gift box. In direct sunlight, diaspore has an adamantine lustre. Some minerals possess a superlative lustre, which is most notably seen in diamond.
Minerals with a lesser (but still relatively high) degree of lustre are referred to as subadamantine, with some examples being garnet and corundum. The gemstones are completely transparent. The clarity grading is IF - VVS1, the best quality. They are an olive green and change to a light reddish orange, very slightly brownish. The gemstones are 100% natural and mined from the earth.Diaspore has a hardness of 5 - 6 on Mohs' scale of hardness. If you would like to read more about the gemstone diaspore, you can select several web sites.
To avoid confusion, I, like other gemstone collector's, refer to this gem by its gemological name, diaspore. Turkish diaspore would also be an appropriate name, since quantities of gem-quality material seem to be unique to that location. I have learned that the larger the cut gemstone, the more pronounced the colour change. This information should be kept for future reference. I have taken the pictures with LED light and shown the colour change with a pen light.
These earrings would dazzle if you were dancing in special lighting. You will see the earring next to a dime for size reference.There are trademarked names for diaspore and belong to a brand. Diaspore was first discovered in 1801 in the Ural Mountains of Russia. It can now be found in the USA (Arizona and Pennsylvania), New Zealand, Brazil, Argentina, Russia, the UK, Turkey and China. I guarantee my jewelry 100%.
