Rare Congolese Pink Andesine is a natural stone that is of the Feldspar group. Although it is termed a "pink", the color is closer to a pale peachy red. This beautiful stone is 11x9mm oval cut and weighs 3 carats. The stone was purchased in 2004, and was represented to me as untreated. I mention this only because of the controversy that has surrounded the red andesine stones. There is controversy and confusion as to which feldspar stones are classified as andensin. Even though both stones are feldspar, Andesine is composed of 50% to 70% albit and 30% to 50% anorthite, and Labradorite is 30% to 50% albite and 50% to 70% anorthite, so do not be confused by what some have termed andnesine-labradorite.
To my knowledge, this one is untreated.

The wrapped setting is executed in a fine gauge sterling silver wire in a delicate and intricate style. This is a size 7 and cannot be resized.
