Collection: Andesine

Andesine is a gemstone belonging to the feldspar group, characterized by its transparent to translucent appearance and range of colors, including red, orange, green, and yellow. It is named after the Andes Mountains in South America, where it was first discovered. However, controversy surrounds the true origin of much of the andesine on the market, with some specimens being found to be treated labradorite or misrepresented as natural stones.

Natural andesine is rare and prized for its vibrant colors and gemstone quality. It is often faceted and used in jewelry, particularly in rings, earrings, and pendants. However, due to its rarity, natural andesine can be quite expensive.
