Historical Information

Euclase's name was from Greek in origin and refers to the ease of it being fractured or chipped, “eu” mean well and “klasis” mean breaking. For this reason, you may not come across a lot of Euclase as jewelry but rather left in its natural state.
Euclase is not a well known gemstone, but is more well known by mineral collectors. It forms well formed crystals that occasionally have enough clarity to be cut as gems. The sapphire blue and blue green colors of Euclase are the typical colors of the gemstones.
Euclase was first reported in 1792 from the Orenburg district in the southern Urals, Russia, where it is found with topaz and chrysoberyl in the gold-bearing gravels of the Sanarka (nowadays probably, Sakmara River, Mednogorsk district, Orenburgskaya Oblast'). Its type locality is Ouro Prêto, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil, where it occurs with topaz. Euclase is met with as a rarity in the mica-schist of the Rauris in the Austrian Alps.
Current sources are Brazil , Germany , Mozambique , Russia and Zimbabwe.
Euclase is the astrological sign for Capricorn.
