Zultanite® Properties

There’s nothing else quite like Zultanite® in the world of gemstones. It’s a single-source gem from the Anatolian mountains of Turkey and a late 20th century find. It changes colors naturally and repeatedly. Some crystals are cut into cat’s eye cabochon stones displaying an additional phenomenal effort. So much is lost during the cutting process (approximately 97% crystal loss) that stones over 5 carats are exceptionally rare. Zultanite’s hardness (rating 6.5-7 Mohs scale) and a specific gravity of 3.39 make this unique stone excellent for jewelry use.

If your jeweler does not carry Zultanite, ask him to contact us so you can preview the world’s most unique color-change gemstone.
