German-cut Stunning and Immense Peridot
Pakistan
Faceted in Idar-Oberstein by Bernd Cullman

The impeccable German faceting of this star-cut, navette (marquise)–shaped stone is only one of its commendable characteristics. Faceted by one of the top cutters in the German gem-cutting city of Idar-Oberstein over 20 years ago the color of this astonishing peridot is a vivid and bright green with even saturation. Using desirable old rough, now unavailable in comparable sizes, the cutter has revealed the highly transparent interior and given the stone a superb polish providing it with a mirror-bright luster. Suitable for mounting as a one-of-a-kind pendant, this sought-after and rare collector's stone is sure to create a statement when worn by the right woman.

Weighing approximately 232.93 and measuring 52.40 x 31.85 x 21.40mm

Accompanied by a copy of a Gemological Report from DSEF, the Deutsche Stiftung Edelsteinforschung (German Foundation for Gemstone Research) Idar-Oberstein, dated July 18, 2000 state star-cut navette-shapped natural peridot.
