I bought a similar one on eBay for 15 bucks a couple years back, cabbed it and made a pendant. It starred decently, but not exceptionally. I have a serious fondness for this material but it isn't very valuable.

Hard to be sure from picture, but it looks like golden sheen sapphire from North Eastern Kena.

There has been some serious hype and high prices asked for the gold sheen material, but it can sometimes be purchased very inexpensively. I have a nice stockpile of the more common straight black and gold stuff.
