This is one amazing benitoite gemstone. Faceted Benitoite gemstones this clean are very rare, and getting even more rare every day.  This stone is Eye Clean (VVS). No inclusions can be seen with the naked eye, using a 10X loupe, a very slight inclusion can hardly be seen hidden in the girdle. 

The color is a beautiful benitoite Dark blue / violet. This benitoite shows the gems Pleochroism very well, it can appear almost colorless or lighter blue in color depending on the orientation when viewed,  but face up the stone looks well saturated. There is some slight color zoning, but not visible face up. The stone has great life in the sunlight. 

Please look at all of the photos. They just cannot properly express the true beauty of this stone.

I guarantee every stone I sell. As with all of my cut stones, if you do not completely love it, contact me within 7 days of receiving the stone, promptly return it to me  un-altered and in original packaging and I will issue you a full refund.  

I stand behind everything I sell! If you won't believe me, then read my Ebay feedback, over 3400 feedback and 100% positive.

All photos are taken at extreme magnification, so that you can see what you are purchasing. Anything on the surface of the stone in the photos is either dust, cotton fibers, or what is known as flea bites. These cannot be seen with the naked eye.

 None of my photos are color enhanced. The colors you see are the true colors.
