A new discovery in the mountains of northern Israel has caused significant excitement for geologists and the public alike. While working in the Zevulun Valley, close to Mount Carmel, Israeli mining company Shefa Yamim found an entirely new mineral never before discovered on earth.
The International Mineralogical Association regularly approves new minerals for its official list, with up to 100 new substances added to the register each year. However, this latest discovery was hailed as a significant event, as it was previously believed that this type of mineral was only found on extraterrestrial material.
This mineral remains rarer than diamonds. “Gemstone prices are usually a function of their rarity,” reported Abraham Taub, CEO of the Israeli gemstone-mining company, Shefa Yamim. When brought to the mineral market, carmeltazite will likely be significantly more expensive than diamonds. Join to see the new mineral in jewelry for the first time.
Tour attendees will be the FIRST to see the newly created jewelry.
