Description

This round vesuvianite cabochon, with its transparent, spring-green color, is a great choice for jewelry designs of all types. Its relative hardness makes it a good alternative to softer stones for a variety of jewelry designs that need a bit of extra durability and the color is a nice alternative to costlier green gemstones.

As its name suggests, this gemstone was discovered near Mount Vesuvius in Italy, found in and around the lava flows there. This clear green stone, also called idocrase, is a silicate mineral that has undergone contact metamorphism as a result of the intrusion of magma into its structure. The stone presents natural inclusions, making each stone unique. Vesuvianite has been found in a range of colors, including green, brown, yellow, and blue.
