Rare Victoria Stone Cabochon
This Beautiful Pair of Hart Cabochon weighs 6.5 total carets.
These Lovely Hart Cabochons measures 10mm x 10mm 5mm *2 and weighs 1.3 grams.

This material is very rare and difficult to find. The people who have it are usually collectors and will not sell because it is so rare.
Victoria stone is also called Imori. Late in the 60's Iimori Laboratory Ltd. of Tokyo Japan began to market a variety of imitation gem materials. Dr. S. Iimori produced some paste (lead glass) in different colors for faceting, also a cat's eye, "jade," and finally his masterpiece:
The chatoyant Victoria stone in 16 different colors. This material was advertised to be a melt of various natural minerals that had reconstructed into a new mineral and cooled for months under 2000 pounds pressure. The melt mass then partially devitrified forming chatoyant fan-like sprays of crystal fibers.
Ideally the fibers would interlock, similar to those that give nephrite jade its toughness. Unfortunately, this did not occur. The glass matrix of the "boule" developed severe internal strains much similar to unannealed glass.
To protect his market, the 84-year-old Dr. Iimori did not patent his process, instead preferring to keep it a secret even from his family. When he passed away they did not continue the operation and the company went bankrupt in 1985.toria Stone Cabochon.
