Up for sale here is a stone that I am parting with from my own personal collection. I watched that documentary called The Minimalists and it got me thinking about reducing how much 'stuff' I have, so I went through my personal gem collection and asked myself which stones truly bring me joy, remondite, serandite, Canadian eudialyte, my 1.38ct Tanzanian kornerupine, these were some of the stones that brought me joy. Sadly this melilite, along with many others I will posting soon, just didn't do it for me.

Melilite is a rare mineral let alone rare faceted gemstone. This one comes from the Kola Peninsula in Russia, an altered pegmatite world famous for its rare mineral species. This stone is a very dark slate blue with lots of tiny pepper like inclusions. yes, I spelled it correctly, yes this really is a MELILITE and not any of the other minerals that have names spelled similarly to this (I had someone ask me once if I meant melanite).

This all natural and untreated super rare melilite measures 5.6 x 2.4 mm in sort of a shield cut, and it weighs 0.32 carats. It is complete gemmy and fully transparent and has light eye visible inclusions for the species.
