a phenomenal stone the exhibit the 6 rayed star shaped pattern that float when the stone is moved.
This effect is due to rutile needles that intersect at 60 degree angles from each other and the lines formed are linked in the center creating the shape of a six rays star.
In the past only stone from India. Sry Lanka and Burma were producing stars,but today we can also find asterism from other countries.
This stone here comes from India and shows a weak star.Medium translucency.Good color.
