Here forsale is an amazing set offaceted Benitoite gemstones.
Benitoite is one of the rarest gemstones on earth. Gem quality Benitoite is only found one place, a small areain San Benito County, CA.
Benitoite can range in color from dark blue with violetto light blue, white to clear.
Benitoite fluoresces a beautiful blue color under shortwave ultra violet light. If it does not fluoresce this bright blue color using shortwave UV, then it is not benitoite.
I cannot state this enough, be carefulwhen purchasing any benitoite.
Due to it's rarity and steep increases in price within the last few yearsfor good quality benitoite gemstones, there aresomedealers trying to sell otherblue gemstones as benitoite. Be especially cautious when buying benitoite from Thailand and othercountries outside of the U.S., or "certified" from these countries. If the stones purchased do turn out to be benitoite, then they rarely live up to their "certification". If you look at the photos of their stones, the photosare always color enhanced, the stones arelesserquality than listed, and the cut of the stones, well let's just say you'll get what you pay for.Remember thatanyone can make up a "certificate" on a computer and say that a gemstone is certified. Just always do your research and "Let the Buyer Beware".
