Gemstones - Zincite

What is Zincite??

Zincite that most people are familiar with, was said to have been grown by accident in the smoke stack of a manufacturing facility of zinc-based paint in Poland. It is Zinc Oxide and the zinc that had become gaseous during the manufacturing process combined with oxygen and cooled, formed brightly colored, mostly orange, red and yellow crystals within the smoke stack. This brightly colored material has a high dispersion, giving flashes of different colors much like that of diamond. Though it is soft, it can still be used in jewelry, but should be worn in pendants, pins and earrings, rather than rings. We have some of this brightly colored material faceted(ovals, emerald cuts, etc), as well as in the rough. Price is based on size and color - with usually the larger pieces being less per carat. All pieces are well cut and clean. See photos below for available stones.

faceted zincite
This is perhaps the largest faceted Zincite out there - approximately 50cts. We obtained a number of crystals years ago, and our cutters faceted a few very large pieces. We know of only one other dealer selling this material, but his Zincite is the more common orange or reddish orange. Yellow is more rare and they show more dispersion. This gemstone measures approx 20x15x11mm. We are attaching two photos, one taken with a light ring and the other in diffused office fluorescent lights. Only one other dealer possesses faceted Zincite that we are aware of, and he has smaller orange faceted pieces (most common color) which he sells for more than what we are aksing per carat for this exceptional piece. Since this could be one of the largest Zincites ever faceted and therefore, should have a premium price - but at $50/ct, this is similar to much smaller faceted pieces! $2,500 (We do have a few large pieces of this color available, but the one above is the largest. If you have an interest in some of these other pieces, feel free to email us!)

Yellow to Greenish Yellow Zincite - Light to Medium Yellowish with a hint of Green in the deeper stones. Very Dispersive, more so than Diamond! Bright, lively with all kinds of colors leaping from internally within the gem. Unlike anything we have seen before in this material!....Faceted Zincite of decent size, fine quality faceting, clean material is difficult to find. We know of no other companies currently with Zincite which falls into this category, other than ourselves and again, we have never seen this unique color either. Note that the size of the gemstone as it appears in the photograph does not indicate relative size to other photos displayed.
