Three gemstones cut from Benitoite, which is the official gemstone of California. All three stones are clean but only the trillion cut stone has the deep blue desired color. The largest cabochon seems to have been added to the box with the others since the weights of only three of the stones was recorded on the bottom of the box. Benitoite is quite rare with exception of this one mine. Even so, the vast majority of crystals are opaque and are not of gem quality.

Condition: Good

Flaws: Although the trillion is quite gemmy and transparent, there are very small dots visible which show up more in the photos than in person. These are likely tiny gas bubbles.
