ENSTATITE

Ambition. Trust. Commitment.

Enstatite is a rare gemstone variety that belongs to the pyroxene group of minerals. It was first described in 1855 by G. A. Kenngott and was assigned its unusual name from the Greek words for 'resistor', in reference to its high melting point. 

The mineral enstatite is rather common, but transparent gemstone-quality crystals are quite rare. Enstatite is one of the lesser-known gemstones and is primarily a collector's gem, owing to its rarity. Enstatite in its purest form is actually transparent and colorless. Its green-brown color and opacity is owed to iron impurities.
