Product Information
Spanish strong Orange sphalerite 257.37ct 36.35x35.42x27.81mm round specialty cut. Gemstone mined and cut in Spain. The gemstone was mined and cut in Spain. The gemstone comes with a Stone Group Labs Gemstone Identification and Origin Report. The stone has been appraised by Craig Lynch G.G. for $16,470.00

Spain's Aliva Mine is considered the finest source for this highly dispersive collector gemstone. Sadly, the mine has been sealed with cement and is now a national park. This created a highly restricted supply. That's why we were thrilled to purchase a limited supply of custom cut, old mine, gem quality, Spanish sphalerite in larger sizes. This incredible gem may well be the largest we ever acquire. For the collector who longs for the bigger collectible gemstones, this one is sure to satisfy that desire!

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!
