    Size- 14 grams/70 carats

    Color- burnt ugly orange without light, tangerine/golden yellow/ with pink tones under direct and back lighting.

    Hardness is over 7.5+ as it put scratches in my test calcite, raw Quartz, and polished amethyst.

    I have some ideas of what it may be but I’d like to hear your thoughts before I come to any conclusions.

    If anyone would like to help I’d appreciate it!

    Thank you, Kellie

    Hi, really only guessing with photo’s but at first glance it looks like it could be chalcedony except chalcedony has a hardness of 7. other than that could be a garnet?? hessonite. realistically you need to get an RI and specific gravity and this should give you a good idea on the stone.

    good luck



    Are you interesred in buying gem stones?We have got a lot gem stones but we don’t have many international buyers.If anybody can help with this,that would be really appreciated.
