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:

"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."
