Ruby-Zoisite Turtle Carving from GemSelect
Gemstone Carvings are a rarity. Not only is the material rare, but the carved result of a cameo, ornament or animal is much more unique than the traditional Round Faceted gemstone.
This is a gemstone carving made from Ruby-Ziosite. Ruby-Zoisite is exactly what it's name refers to: a single specimen that contains both Ruby (red corundum) and zoisite (the same material as violet-blue Tanzanite). Rub-Zoisite is excellent for gemstone carvings and often cut en cabochon for pendants and other earthy jewelry. The pinkish and red colors are a result of the ruby compound and the earthy greens and browns are owed to the zoisite. Together, the colors compliment each other excellently.
This turtle carving is 131.95 carats and is absolutely adorable! Watch the video below and see the carving from all angles. You can see more details such as measurements and etc at http://www.gemselect.com/ruby-zoisite/ruby-zoisite-309615.php.
