Benitoite is one of the rarest of all gemstones. It's only found in gem quality in one spot on the planet, a small mine in the San Benito mountains of central California, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Discovered in 1907, Benitoite was first thought to be a sapphire because of it's intense dark blue color. Scientific analysis revealed it to be an is an extremely rare barium titanium cyclosilicate. Since 1985, Benitoite is the official state gemstone of California.

Benitoite has hardness ~ 6 1/2 which means wear it with a bit of care-- no digging in the garden or rock climbing while wearing your rare gem. It's best color, a rich saturated blue, as we see in this example, rivals the finest sapphire. It has high refraction and dispersion, so it will reward you with flashes and sparkles of rainbow fire as well.

Benitoites don't come in large sizes-- anything over 1/2 carat is considered large for Benitoite. You'll certainly have a story to tell about this one-of-a-kind ring, adorned with an extremely rare and collectible Benitoite and designed by Jenny Sweaney of Mardon Jewelers.
