Enstatite gemstones are somewhat rare and lesser known. They are considered collector's gemstones. Enstatite belongs to the pyroxene group of minerals and was first described in 1855. Enstatite gemstones have a hardness of 5.5 and a vitreous luster when polished. Some of the finest enstatite specimens are sourced from Burma and Sri Lanka. Cat's eye enstatite and star enstatite gemstones are known, but extremely rare.
This was my second purchase from GemSelect and definitely won’t be my last! They have a very wide variety of gems and you can always find what you are looking for with ease and the prices are very good.
finally bought the last rock to complete my ring idea; needed another white one after giving the big diamond to my daughter. a diamond that size is out of my retired-school-teacher budget, so i bought a white zircon. went back to the same place that i got my loose sapphire-- great selection, good prices, good delivery!
