Magnificent Purplish Red Spinel
There are few opportunities when the appellation of "world class" is appropriate for a gem stone and this is one of them. Internally flawless, this cushion-shaped gem is classic. Distinguished by a unique purplish red color which is extraordinary. This natural spinel possesses all the desirable characteristics of the species. Given the mineralogy of spinels finding rough which can produce stones above 10 carats is almost unheard of--and this stone exceeds that magic number.
This is an exceptional offering worthy of consideration of attention by the most serious collector of rarities whose beauty can be recognized by every beholder and whose value is sure to endure.
Weighing approximately 10.21 carats and measuring 15.3 x 11.5 x 6.6mm
