Carmeltazite, discovered by Shefa Yamim and found in its gemstone, the Carmel Sapphire™, has been recognised as a new and rare mineral.
The Carmel Sapphire™ is unlike any other sapphire found in the world. The rough Carmel Sapphire™ is typically black, blue to green and orange-brown in color. The largest stone found thus far is 33.3ct in weight (bulk sample 1124 from the Kishon Mid Reach, zone 1). The Company has already received a trademark from the Israeli Government to market the stones under the name “Carmel Sapphire”.
Details regarding the tour will be published closer to the date.
