Custom Wire Wrapped Eudialite Necklace/Pendant/Slide/Enhancer Sterling Silver .935 Size: 1 11/16 x 7/8 inch or 43mm x 22mm
A member of the family of cyclosilicate mineral, Eudialyte is formed in Trigonal hexagonal scalenohedral crystal formation. The name of this stone has been taken from a Greek phrase, which in English means well decomposable. Eudialyte first came into existence in 1819 when some deposits of it were found in Greenland.
Eudialyte is regarded as the minor ore of Zirconium. The other minor use of Eudialyte is as a minor gemstone but because this stone is a little hard to find, this use becomes very limited. It also has a very poor crystal habit, and hence these reasons make it more of a collector’s stone.
On Moh’s scale the hardness of this stone range in between 5 to 6. The alternative names for this stone are Saami Blood, almandine spar, and eudialite.
