Cushion rectangular cut with beautiful pinkish orange the lab said for color. I love the color tone and looking for inclusions I'm not seeing anything. Looks like VVS or better under magnification. Normally high end stones of this clean nature are seldom found. Especially in an unheated untreated gem with quality cut and polish for highly reflective stone.Origin of this stone is DRC formerly the Belgian Congo. Normally the miners sell to the brokers who charge tax and the cost goes way up to market value when buying through government sources. There are other ways to get the stones to market and that way is to smuggle the best rough out to Tanzania and Rwanda where buyers are waiting in low cost hotels. The stones are then shipped to Sri Lanka and Thailand to be cut and sold on the international market.
Wonderful Spinel! Fine cut, a real masterpiece. So purple and shining. I can see through. Very beautiful. The seller very attentive and serious in his work. A professional, quick to answer questions and doubts. Delivery fast and safe. Shop very recommenda
Thanks so much for picking a quality cut gemstone.
