Astrophyllite is a very rare, brown to golden coloured mineral and can contain golden, shimmering aggregates.
Its delightful submetallic gleam and darkness contrast sharply with the light matrix (or stone that holds it).
The name "Astrophyllite" comes from the Greek words "astron" meaning "star" and "phyllon meaning" "leaf".
This ring measures 3cm x 2.5cm. It is a US size 7 or British size N.
