Zultanite the “Sultan of Gems” is a remarkable—and recent—gem discovery. It is found in only ONE deposit in the remote and jaw-droppingly beautiful Anatolia Mountains of Turkey. Zultanite has a color-change phenomenon–the most rare of gem effects–with colors for one gem ranging from sage green and canary yellow, to vivid kiwi green, raspberry pink, with warm ginger and cognac.
Zultanite, a gem variety of diaspore, only occurs in the mountainous region of Anatolia, Turkey. The gem exhibits the optical property called “color change.” Zultanite gems turn from yellowish-green to purplish-pink depending on the light source. Sizes over 5 carats are very rare. Gem quality crystals were first discovered in the early 1980s
