This is a very nice faceted benitoite gemstone. 

This stone is slightly included for a type 2 gemstone, the inclusions can be seen with the naked eye.  Most of these inclusions are actually growth flaws that were in the crystal. The stone is still very transparent. The color of this large stone ranges from a benitoite light to dark blue. The Pleochroism is quite evident on this stone. There are areas where the natural flaws cause a reversal of color which is very interesting to see, but you may need to use magnification to see it well.   

Please look at all of the photos. They just cannot properly express the true beauty of this stone, even with it's natural imperfections. This stone would look fantastic in a pendant or ring with it's naturally flawed look.

I guarantee every stone I sell.  As with all of my cut stones, if you do not completely love it, contact me within 7 days of receiving the stone, return it to me un-altered and in original packaging and I will issue you a full refund.
