Set Of 2 Moroccan Amethyst Average 2.00ctw 7mm Round. Gemstone Mined Morocco And Cut In China.
MOROCCAN AMETHYST....Jewelry Television is pleased to present stunning amethyst from one of the newest gemstone discoveries of the 21st century! For those who are movie buffs, you may recognize Morocco as the home of the fabled city of Casablanca, the namesake of the classic 1942 movie. Morocco's desert landscape is dotted by kasbahs, with camels often the preferred mode of transportation. While amethyst from Morocco has been known for some time, it was a newer discovery on an isolated mountainside that first yielded gem-quality crystals. Discovered in late 2007 high in the Anti-Atlas Mountains, the amethyst deposit is located in weathered rock on the Bouodi Mountain. Mining operations are sporadic and workers use basic hand tools to retrieve the precious amethyst crystals. Only a small percentage of the very limited production is deemed gem quality material worthy of faceting. Many of the amethyst crystals contain reddish-brown dendritic hematite inclusions, serving as a tell-tale sign of origin. A new source for one of the most beloved gems of all time, we invite you to discover the exotic beauty of Moroccan amethyst today at Jewelry Television and jtv.com.
