⧫⧫ Grandidierite is an extremely rare mineral and gem that was first discovered in 1902 in southern Madagascar. It often displays a lovely blue-green color and is seldom seen in gem or jewelry collections. It has a hardness of 7.5, which makes it very resistant to scratching and ideal for jewelry use. However, it also has perfect and good cleavage in two directions, which makes it challenging to cut. Its scarcity makes this a relatively little known gemstone.
⧫⧫ Care for grandidierite: Due to this gemstone's cleavage and “brittle” tenacity, this gemstone may have increased susceptibility to blows and chipping. *Avoid* mechanical cleaning systems. Instead, use a soft brush, mild detergent, and warm water
