Named after Russian mineralogist Pavel Vladimirovich Eremeev (Jeremejev in German) (1830–1899) this rare mineral was first described in 1883 upon its discovery in the Mt. Soktui, Nerschinsk district, Adun-Chilon Mountains, Siberia.
Jeremejevite is often mentioned as being the rarest of all rare gemstones. Most frequently seen as tiny, bluish, elongated, narrow crystals of just a few millimeters in length, they were first found in Namibia, the only known source for the mineral until just a few years ago.
The present stone is a collectible and sought-after item faceted as an elongated emerald-cut with light yellowish-orange color with excellent clarity and luster. Weighing approximately 1.79 carats and measuring 14.54 x 4.0 x 3.07mm
