This is a really great sphere cut from a super piece of Llanite and nicely polished and finished.
It shows both the blues and the pinks that this stone is so well known for.
Llanite is a type of Rhyolite with inclusions of Feldspar and Blue Quartz. The Blue Quartz is thought to be coloured blue by the presence of Ilmenite. It is only found in the Llano Uplift, a geological feature in Llano County, Texas, USA.
It is often sold as Que Sera Stone, and indeed, it does share many of that stones properties.
Just to confuse matters even further it is also sometimes called Vulcanite and, when set into jewellery, sometimes goes by the name of Blue Liberite !
This is an excellent sphere with great colours and superb patterns - and it's a big size too !
