Maybe a nice-colored danburite?

Hi Seaglow,

no - not Sulphur and not danburite.

The stone is less than 0,10 ct...

I love Johachidolite but no - this is another mineral / gem

The little stones on the right are Johachidolites

The problem is that it isn't clear what you mean by "rare".

Do you mean rare as in a rare yellow sapphire, or rare yellow tourmaline? (Both of those are rare, but not unheard of colors for those gemstones). That is do you mean a rare color for a gemstone or a rare gemstone that is that color?

It is a mineral sometimes used as a gem but almost never clean enough to facet - a vivid neon color is rare too.

So rare as a faceted gem with a vivid color.

kyanite? (a good guess)
corkite?
asisite?
anglesite (also is a good guess)

Wow - never heard of "asisite" and "corkite"

But none of these four minerals is my little gem.

Some help?

It is from Canada...
