|| This rare material comes from Araçuaí in Minas Gerais, Brazil. It cuts
much like feldspar or quartz and is a must for every collector. For more
information about cutting petalite and its properties, check out our petalite
info page. May contain a few small typical cleavages on the surface
that will cut out in the faceting process. Otherwise, these stones are flawless.
Petalite grows in relatively flat crystals. Therefore, it is hard to find
material that offers a good yield. We were lucky enough to be able to select the
cleanest and best yielding stones from over 10 kilos of rough!
