Chrysoberyl crystals.
"double heart" and "crown" in the back are from Brazil. The two neon from Madagascar. The sixling (flower) and a unique crossgrown flat double crystal from Sri Lanka. And a rare colorless V-shape chryso crystal from Burma.

I NEED a Vanadium Chrysoberyl in my life! Anyone know of any available?

Multicolour has several. They are listed as chrysoberyl, but will say “Vanadium Chrysoberyl“ under Editor Comment. Here are a few that I could find by sorting under chrysoberyl, then by color, choosing the blue-green options:

Received this chrysoberyl last week! 1DD71FBB-1B7E-4C13-823A-18471820B2EB.jpeg B69D2408-E836-4296-9551-E2D22D1E15D8.jpeg 547B45F6-AD75-42EF-BB10-E545C7A5EF72.jpeg

lol, I actually dreamt about chrysoberyl last night, and a stone that looked just like this!! I think I’m a bit insane, or obsessed, but there’s no doubting this is a gorgeous gem. I love those elongated step cuts too!

Still impressive even without colour shift and the cut is really good.

I haven’t set her quite yet but I’m so exciting that I found this setting for my 1.6ct vanadium chrysoberyl 467AAE43-98A6-49D9-B41A-C1FD223FEA92.jpeg

I found it used and it just happens to fit the stone perfect AND my finger already

My rare brownish red chrysoberyl from Malacacheta, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Hi I apologize for reviving an old thread but are you able to share any details on who cut this? I’ve been on the hunt for something like this

Love all the beauties in this thread! I only have a teeny tiny one to contribute. It’s a cat’s eye with a rather large noticeable crack unfortunately (but I still love it). My camera doesn’t capture the green in the stone at all for some reason but it’s there, I promise. The camera also captures a much larger color shift than I see with the naked eye.

I love these. The cat's eye is magic - such a bright glowing colour such clean translucency. The ?princess stone is almost unbelievably bright.

The cat's eye is set at 45 degrees. Is there a story about this? Since it's round, it could presumably have been set vertical, so I guessing it was a deliberate choice.

I didn’t set it so I’m not sure
