Ahhhoite... what an amazing color! Only truly to be seen again in nature in tropical waters. We have an uncanny symbiotic relationship with this stone and our passion for this color spectrum is indescribable. This fantastic Copper Silicate inclusion in Quartz hails from the Messina Mine, on the border of South Africa and Zimbabwe, originally found in Ajo, Arizona. We have been fortunate enough to develop a great relationship with the miners of this material over the past 4 years and have distributed about 80% of the material that came out of the two major pockets hit in 2008.
