Hello All, This is my first auction here on this site so if I miss something or make a mistake in the listing format please forgive me. My name is Kurt and I own Foothills Gemstones, based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, USA. I custom cut all of my gemstones that I will be listing on an antiquated Ultra Tec faceting machine without computers, I use pen and paper for my designs, and each piece is a unique piece of art, I rarely cut the same design twice.Now about the stone…

TanzanianIdocrase in this quality is very rare to come by, I came across 2 small pieces of rough about a year ago, I kept one for myself and have decided to sell this one. Cut in my “Leaf” design, a relatively simple step cut yet it shows off the gems trichroic nature quite well. Apple greens, canary yellows, and scotch browns blend wonderfully in this piece to make it truly unique cut from untreated Tanzanian material.

This piece is considered VVS, some small inclusions would only be seen under magnification.

A copy of the original handwritten cutting diagram will accompany this stone when purchased.
