Thanks. Gergis and I have been having fun finding new areas to find old favorites.

Nice!  Is orange an unusual color in listwanite?  I thought it was normally more blue-green.

The color is rare. Poder blue is rarer yet and incredibly nice to cut. As hydrothermal  fluid flood the faults listwanite is formed in the listwanites keep metamorphosing spreading the silica throughout the stone so the undercutting disappears.

Thanks for the explanation.  Do you have an example of Poder blue that you can post a picture of?
