|Note:||This gem is from the Eldarado Bar along the Missouri river , just below the Canyon Ferry Dam. A new source for me , The Blaze-N-Gems Mine.I have mined at the Eldorado Bar in my younger days with some success. It was extraordinarily hard work. |
This stone is
a bright blue with a faint green secondary.
It contains "silk" that softens the color a bit and in so doing lessens the clarity , hence the VS . Inside it has the "steely" quality , especially under artificial light. . .
