This is a fairly NEW FIND of Medium Golden Yellow Scapolite Faceting Rough from Mozambique! This material was purchased in Tanzania; however, the seller of this material assured us that it was from Mozambique from a fairly new find and that he brought it over to Tanzania himself.

There are inclusions in some of these stones; however, the lot is roughly 75%+ Top Grade Facet Rough with most stones capable of cutting eye-clean or better finished gemstones with a little planning and some hard work.

These are not small stones and the average weight is about 23 CARATS! Most of the stones in here are crystal sections with many stones showing partial terminations. Don't miss this bargain!
