Precious gem variety of olivine. One of the few gems that occurs in only one color. A celestial, astronomical mineral found in meteorites. At one time, it was more valuable than diamonds. Birth stone for August.
A KILLER miniature in almost pristine condition (or as near as you can ask for in one of these beasts anyhow), with GLASSY luster, DEEP RED CHERRY COLOR, and sharp scalenohedral crystals to one inch in length!
