#NewDay with a #NewSun called #sphalerite 😜👏😎👍🏽🌝🌞 @Regrann from @reenaahluwalia – I mostly work with colourless or #fancycolordiamonds. At the same time I love #gemstones of all color and size. Today, I came across an amazing stone from Spain! Sphalerite. Did you know it has high #dispersion of 0.156, over three times that of diamond? This stone was shown to me by Mr. @adolfodebasilio #Crystallography & #gemology in #Madrid, #Espana. #Spain. Origin of stone: Transparent crystals from the #AlivaMine, Picos de Europa Mountains, #Cantabria [#Santander] Province, Spain. #YellowOrange #Yellow #Orange #Green. #Regrann #DeJoyaEnJoya #FromJewelToJewel #ColouredGemstones #cut #InstaJewels #jewels #jewelry #jewellery #joaillerie #gioielli
