AQUAMARINE WITH ILMENITE
Aquamarine with Ilmenite .. a true interstellar prince - found on Madagascar where ilmenite is a mineral that can also be found on the moon. It reminds us that we are a tiny fraction of a universe where dusts of creation travel and we are a part of that journey. Ilmenite sways on the slopes of some mountain springs, and lits up earths most secret undercurrents.
When aquamarine and ilmenite come together in this outstanding mineral some kind of magic happens- the dark pepper of ilmenite makes the luster and shine of aquamarine even more potent creating a mirror like bright surface within the aquamarine. It is a true wonder, wonder we like to gaze into imagining distant lands, maybe galaxies, thinking of its secrets.
It was part of our friend Fabrice Danet discovery on the island of Madagascar and our mutual understanding of beauty of unusual gems allowed us to find out about this gem firsthand, even before it was examined by GIA. Fabrice new from our many meetings that we adore the magical essence displayed within included gems.
Since than we are happy to share with you this unique, unaltered and organically alluring specimen of a prince - recently we abbreviated it’s long name to Aquil - how about we make him prince.
Inclusions in aquamarine with ilmenite vary just like density of the stars in the sky, so does it’s luminosity but one thing remains - each and every one is different, shines it’s inner light with it’s very own force and character shown by unique cut, which we would be delighted to watch with you.
