(A 'triplet' is a manufactured stone, made up of three different parts: a crown, a thin piece of usually colored material, and a pavilion. In this case, both the crown and pavilion are made of clear quartz, while a thin slice of blue quartz between the two makes a blue appearance throughout the whole).
