Product Information

Spanish strong Orange sphalerite 66.74ct 23.55x24.20x16.53mm round, custom cut. The gemstone was mined from the Aliva Mine in Cantabria, Spain and was also cut in Spain. The gemstone comes with an Stone Group Labs Gemstone Identification and Origin Report. The stone has been appraised by Craig Lynch G.G. for $6,005.00.

All of the Spanish sphalerite gemstones in our President's Collection are wonderful. The majority of these very large sphalerite gems were acquired from a well known lapidary from his personal collection. Usually, fine gems of these sizes, above 25 carats, that have exceptional custom lapidary cuts from the closed Aliva Mine in Spain are never seen. Get this one now, it is ideal for the serious collector!

This magnificent sphalerite was fashioned by master lapidary Egor Gavrilenko, who specializes in cutting gem quality Spanish sphalerite, a rare gem prized for its exceptional optical characteristics. Mr. Gavrilenko has been fascinated with geology and mineralogy since he was a child growing up in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Surrounded by mineral crystals brought home by his geologist father, Egor turned his childhood passion into a successful career as he began working in the gem testing laboratory of the Spanish Gemological Institute (IGE) and later as a mineralogist and lecturer at the Spanish Open University (UNED). Today, he is the IGE delegate to the Federation for European Education of Gemology (FEEG), holding the position of Vice Chairman since 2012. In 2007, Egor returned to his passion of lapidary work, concentrating primarily on precision faceting, developing new faceting designs and optimizing existing designs with the aid of computer technology. Egor's desire is for every gem lover to be aware of the incredible optical properties of Spanish sphalerite, made even more dazzling by his expert faceting!
