What is Zincite??
Zincite that most people are familiar with, was said to
have been grown by accident in the smoke stack of a
manufacturing facility of zinc-based paint in
Poland. It is Zinc Oxide and the zinc that had become
gaseous during the manufacturing process combined with
oxygen and cooled, formed brightly colored, mostly orange,
red and yellow crystals within the smoke stack. This
brightly colored material has a high dispersion, giving
flashes of different colors much like that of
diamond. Though it is soft, it can still be used in
jewelry, but should be worn in pendants, pins and
earrings, rather than rings. We have some of this brightly
colored material faceted(Rounds, Radiants and Princess and
a few other shapes are available). The price is
approximately $30/ct depending on the size, the color,
etc. All pieces are well cut and clean. See
photos below for available stones. Call for more details
or with your requests.
Below are two photographs of a naturally terminated rough crystal:
(Over 160cts! That's
only $5.31 per carat!)
Faceted examples of Zincite. Miscellaneous sizes and shapes available - limited quantity!
All stones have been faceted by our cutters and sparkle brilliantly.
Check on our Zincite Inventory - We occasionally facet
new material from our rough....

"I just received the Zincite & owahee jasper. I am very happy with the jasper and -- TOTALLY blown away by the EXCELLENT color and brillance of the Zincite. I will be telling my lapidary and custom jeweler friends about ALL THAT GLITTERS. I also have a few friends who only wear custom made jewelry who I will be telling about A.T.G. I will definately be interested in the Elegante cut Zincite in about 3 months."
