Jewel of the day: kimberlite ring

This ring was made for my mother-in-law when she lived in South Africa. It’s a beautiful piece of kimberlite, a rock formed by the melting of the earth’s mantle and in which diamonds are typically found. The crystals that make up kimberlite give the “stone” a beautiful sheen.  This is large, about 1-3/4 inches. It’s my knuckle duster almost diamond!
