This pendant features a rare crystal of natural Afghan hiddenite (real untreated Cr-colored hiddenite, not irradiated green kunzite) in sterling silver. The raw stone weighs in at 8 carats, and measures 1.03 x 0.36 inches (26.1 x 9.2 mm).

Hiddenite is a very rare and special gem. It is a variety of the gem spodumene given beautiful green color by the presence of the element chromium, which also gives color to emeralds and rubies. While it was once thought to only occur in North Carolina, at least two other locations have produced notable amounts of gem hiddenite--Brazil and Afghanistan. While a large amount of Afghan spodumene is irradiated to turn it a bright green (a color which quickly fades in sunlight), there was a small find of genuine hiddenite a few years back. This material is a rarity and looks very different from the fake treated material: the stones are small, crystals are not as well formed and it tends to have a fine white matrix with tiny black prismatic crystals.

This stone shows a rich, saturated green color with nice internal clarity. It is a remarkable gem!
