For those of you looking for American faceting rough, this is Arizona Peridot. Interestingly, peridot is one of the few gems found in only one color. While peridot can range from bright yellow-green when low in iron to brownish-green when high in iron, it is always green.
Arizona peridot is commonly small, but this piece has already been partially preformed the a polished table to remove an inclusion, leaving you with an amazingly perfect blocky shape. It will cut with great retention, and it is a lovely apple green that will cut a bright and beautiful gem.
