Rare Fine Burmese Peridot
Very rare eye clean natural medium dark green Burmese peridot weights 83.09 cts. Asking price is 20.000 USD.
The most beautiful peridots come from the border area between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Fine peridot has also been found in Burma for hundreds of years.
Although peridot is also mined in the U.S.A., China, East Africa, and North Korea, the sizes are rarely very large and stones over 5cts. are quite rare. Peridot is one of the few gemstones which are available in only one color.
