Clinohumite from the Heavenly Pamir Mountains in Tajikistan

The Pamirs, also known as the “Roof of the World” are one of the last ”undiscovered” tourist destinations. This mountainous area, a large part of which is located in Gorno-Badakhshan in Tajikistan, is one of the most inaccessible areas in the world.

Around the beginning of 2007, in this region, there was a find of some of the most spectacular Clinohumite crystals ever found. Most of these crystals were of a vivid color ranging from yellowish-orange to intense-orange, and excellent clarity. More importantly, there were some unique crystals found with exclusively rare sizes. Unfortunately, the yield was very low and the find got exhausted very quickly.

A few months back, we were lucky to get our hands on one such large rough Clinohumite crystal weighing 43.25-Carats (8.47 gms).

This rough crystal was eventually cut & polished at our workshop into a stunningly beautiful 22.82-Carat Pear-Shaped Clinohumite:

This color of this stone is an intensely saturated shade of orange, comparable to the color of fire, or the color of the sun. The clarity is almost eye-clean – very unusual for clinohumites of this size because they are almost always heavily included even in smaller sizes.  This gem is very well and symmetrically cut which allows it to display excellent luster and sparkle. Video of the stone is available to view on the product listing page to get a better judgement of the quality.
