Andalusite

This beautiful and fascinating stone is relatively unknown, but don't let that put you off! Named after the area in Spain in which it was first found, Andalusite comes in a variety of body colours. However, its most distinguishing characteristic is its eye-visible pleochroism, so pronounced that it can be observed through the crown. In fact, unlike most other pleochroic stones, the different colours can be seen simultaneously, creating a mosaic of hues. Body colours range from yellowish green to brownish orange; the pleochroic tones can be reds, greens and oranges; lovely soft earth tones. The stones that I have are in soft tones of greens and pinkish orange, and you can see the pleochroism yourself in the pictures.
