I have never heard of this gem until today. It's a color change stone that is coming out of the Anatolian Mountains in Turkey. It looks like a beautiful stone and I want to see about getting one. Anyone here know where to find them.

I've seen Zultanite at one of my friends antique jewelry shops here in San Diego as well as on GEMSTV because they sell it all the time. It's orgin comes from Turkey and it's rather expensive. Now grant it, although it's a very pretty gem, I'm not going to pay $15,000.00 or higher for it. YES I've seen it on GEMSTV for $35,000.00. They've lost their minds!!!

I have some Zultanite, set and/or unmounted
Quote this post and reply to it Post#6 @ 08-29-08 , 03:53 PM


Let me know what size and price range you are looking for.
I set some aside when it first came out as I really really love it and think it is a stone with great potential.
The color changes are remarkable and so beautiful.

I found that the source does matter as when I bought "cheap" Zultanite it wasn't anything like the good quality stones I bought.

The rings I bought from GemsTV were very pricey but the stones were excellent quality. The best stones have the best color change phenomena.
I also explored other sources and found ti to be true- you buy cheap, you get cheap. Once you have brought it to the USA IT IS IMPOSSIBLE (almost) to return it to the seller.

I have very good quality stones from ring sizes to earring sizes.

I would also be willing to part with certain of my pre-made rings. You can let me know what sizes or types of rings you are looking for.

The natural unheated stones show up lime green in outdoor light, yellow in indoor light or rather ordinary lgiht, and a lovely mauve/pink in low light situations.

I really love my Zultanite!

I am just a hobbyist but Zultanite has really grabbed my interest.
I live in California and that is where i have my zultanites. So you don't need to worry about importing them.
And I take paypal.

So glad I so your message....
Thanks so much,
Pookarina

hello all,
I am very curious about this new stone as well------it looks amazing! You asked where to buy it, it seems to be listed as "diaspore"/zultinite on ebay.

Check this link-----Diaspore/Zultinite

Hope that is of some help, it does seem to be very rare still.

I think the stone is awesome!!! But it is soft so I haven't purchased one. I think the hardness is around 6? Too easy to ruin in my clumsy hands.

also, Zultanite is a patented name for color change diaspore.
The ones I have bought as Zultanite seem to be better cut and polished than some of the ones I bought as generic c c diaspore.
I don't know if they use any quality control or if the patent on the name has expired.
Ebay was using their VERO program on listings that said Zultanite without "documentation" that it is Zultanite.

That said, it is an incredibly beautiful phenomena stone with multi color changes and even shows mixed color in mixed light sources.
I still love it.

It might help to look at it this way. The stone is color change diaspore. One company is buying it and selling theirs as zultanite. They might be very choosy in the quality that they sell, and they may buy carefully. But you can also contact any colored stone dealer who has access to or inventory of Turkish color change diaspore and tell him that you would like to buy a high quality stone with a strong color change, great cutting, and few inclusions. He won't call it zultanite though. Is zultanite better than diaspore? No, it isn't. It is the same stone.

As far as value, the degree of color change, the weight, and the clarity are important value factors for this stone. Like any other color change gem, large pieces in very high quality can command exorbitant sums because demand far outstrips supply.

I know it has been a while since the last post. I recieved in my recent gemmological society news letter that the mine in Turkey that this stone comes from has closed down and is a world heritage site and is protected for a tourist attraction it recieved it's name from the kings that visited that region. If there is any interest I can dig up the article. does anyone know if this has affected the price of Zultanite.

Hi, I've been very fortunate enough to have one of these gemstones in a ring which was owned by my late Grandmother. I've just come back from Turkey and i took my nans ring with me as it was very old fashioned with a very dark sapphire in it which i didn't really like as was not modern. I took it to a friend who happens to be a jeweller in Marmaris who changed the ring by changing the ring band and setting from yellow gold to white gold/rhodium plate and then exchanged the stone from the saphire to a beautiful zultanite stone, its purely stunning and i am so thrilled. I still have my nans ring but instead of it being stored in a box it rests now on my finger..... You can purchase these beautiful stones from the owner (Nazmi) at Titanic Jewllery, Marmaris. He is a very honest man, won't rob you blind and give you a fair price. He is on teh internet. Hope this helps. Thanks. x
