HONEYSTONE, or Mellite, is an unusual mineral being also an organic chemical. Like jet, it is found in deposits of brown coal, and its formation is partly the result of vegetable decomposition, which is very unusual for gemstones. It is a translucent crystal, resembling amber in appearance, which can be polished and faceted to form striking gemstones. Honeystone is typically found in crystals of gray, brown to reddish, and more rarely yellow or honey-coloured. It was named from the Greek , "melis" for honey. It was discovered in 1789 at in Germany and since has been found in Russia, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Hungary.
