Item Description

Gem quality Spinels are some of the most beautiful gems in the world. They almost have a metallic quality to them, and fine cut stones really look beautiful in any kind of light. Recently the Morogoro Region of Tanzania has been producing some world-class gem quality Spinels, with many superb red and pink stones in larger sizes. For a long time, the only reliable source of facet grade Spinel was the Mogok area of Myanmar, along with various localities in Sri Lanka, but these new Tanzanian stones have really bolstered the supply of material worldwide. This particular stone is a superb "modified elongated cushion" cut gem with a fiery pinkish-red hue and eye-clean clarity! It's a top quality example of these fantastic Spinels with a beautiful color and a rarely seet cut for the species. Valued at $3,780.00 retail.
