Hello All. 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 stoneā€¦

Unheated ruby rough is difficult to find anywhere, then add a rare locale, and excellent color and clarity. The piece you are viewing is small but very beautiful. I don’t have any doubts that you’ll fall in love with this Ruby upon holding it. The Lake Baringo region of Kenya offers very small quantities of high grade rough, I happened across a small parcel from one of my contacts in East Africa and have only cut a few pieces as this material is very rare and I want to hold on to most of it. The cutting is my version of a modified triliant, its very bright with excellent light return.

This material is completely untreated and I will gladly buy the stone back at full price if you have a different finding, that’s how confident I am in my supplier.

This piece is considered VVS with only slight flaw visible under magnification, I would easily rate it eye clean.

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