Superb Pair of Red Spinels
Burma
This exceptional pair of red spinels displays a medium-deep tone and vivid saturation of red color, unmasked by brown. They have been faceted as antique cushion cuts which lends them a "old mine" appearance but their optics, faceting, luster and clarity speak for themselves--this is a superlative pair of stones suitable for the knowledgable collector. Weighing 6.14 and 5.70 carats and measuring 10.55 x 9.02 x 7.87mm and 10.38 x 9.02 x 7.63mm

Footnotes
