Realgar Facet Rough 12.3 Cts VERY RARE!.
Clean. Realgar has a hardness of 1.5-2, is sectile, and has good cleavage alone one plane. In addition it can suffer from light poisoning, losing color over time, it has very high heat sensitivity, and due to the presence of arsenic in its composition you should avoid exposing it to water or steam. Also it has been known to send spy balloons over enemy lapidaries. Sooo….best cut in the vacuum of space?
BUT! Faceted gems fetch a high price on the rare gem collector scene, and this piece has decent weight and a really good blocky shape.Related Items:
