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.

Many beautiful gems on the site. Love that you are actually shipped the gem that is shown in the photos. Also cool that they give a write up of each gem detailing hardness, characteristics, and best uses for mounting. Great site! Looking forward to seeing these gems in person.
