Covelite and Pyrite, Extremely Rare Gem of the Gods Found on Mount Vesuvius USA GEM
The gold on this gem is actually pyrite but what is special is the gem on the other side known as covelite. Electric denim blue colors fascinate scientists and laymen alike. This incredible example of covelite is truly University or museum quality and should be viewed as a collector. I know people are actually trying to facet this material and that is a shame because the material is worth a lot as is and the addition of pyrite to this gem makes it one of about 250 identified gems w pyrite by a major gem resource. We have three total and one is less extravagant in its color BUT super rare due to origin. The original source was mount Vesuvius but we now have three examples of the 2nd rarest US source and one unlisted stone from the rarest source on earth. Call or email if interested in the top example we have it is not on the site, very rare.
