Afghan Hiddenite

Afghan Hiddenite rough parcel #2

  This is a relatively new find of hiddenite from Afghanistan. It is very hard to find the rough and as all hiddenite not real cheap. There was recently a write up in gems and gemology on the rough saying it does have the chromium and vanadium content. The color is ranging between emerald green to a yellow green which is typical of this rough.
