Chicken Egg size Moonstone that came from the 1st Japanese Expidition to Mt Kilimanjaro Africa in 1918. Weight is 100grams & I am told by Heritage auctions in Dallas Texas its about 300 carat and has a value of U.S$7,000 - $10,000.00 dollars .

I am curious to know if anyone else has seen these unique types of Moonstone previously ?, or has any other info they can share.
The internet does not seem to want to give me more detail ........?.

Clearly river tumbled & a lovely specimen with that natural purple Glow.
