Overall Grade: Very Good+

Comment: Our third euclase is only 30 points but see its dimensions: almost 6x4mm, shallow but not windowed. Blue euclase may be compared to, or compete with, cobalt spinel or good sapphire, but they do have a very unique, peerless type of blue. Images of facetted gems do not catch it 100%, so I ask you to use your imagination and mix the butterfly's color to the upper part of the close-up below: There you have the width of blue variations, bright and yet pushy metallic and greenish(?); sooo 'euclasish'. It shines in our faceted versions with all force, for meters visible even in only 30 points. Euclase is often strongly color-zoned and heavily included, but not so this little beauty, here is an unprecedented 'free of inclusion'. Euclase is a challenge for any lapidary, but once set it is brave and durable. With this in mind, a well cut, pretty euclase without ugly inclusions or flaws, it a total rarity. The fact that we will soon have four in stock does not mean euclase is becoming widely available but rather we have become, from zero to four in one month, the world's dominant, almost dirty monopolist, gem-euclase trader, thanks to an excellent source in South Africa, a Gent who has gathered these super rare gems for over half a century but spilled them to us in one go. Back to this gem: An affordable but very visible chance to own one of the rarest gem's in the world, beautiful to boot. Please also read the comments of 1.56 since a 'new' gem-variety has too many topics to captured in one gem's comment, or can be repeated every time. 

P.S. I saw a butterfly in the forest that remined me of the color variances in euclase and I looked it up: It was, I think, a 'Blue Morpho'. Of course, living nature is beyond comparison and a high aspiration, but the intense blue of euclase is very special.
