Another precious stone in the same family as Taaffeite, this stone’s color ranges from a brilliant greenish gray to purple. Musgravite was discovered in 1967 in the Musgrave Range of Southern Australia, and for many years there were only eight known specimens.

Recently, small quantities of Musgravite have been located in Greenland, Antarctica, Sri Lanka, Madagascar and Tanzania. Don’t let this new “surplus” fool you, though: this incredibly hard stone is still exceedingly rare, fetching $35,000 – or more – per carat.

Composition: Magnesium, Beryllium, Aluminum, Zinc, Iron, Oxygen
