13.50 ct. Italian Yellow Barite

Color:  Medium Dark Yellow Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Sardinia, Italy Cut:  Cushion
Treatments:  None Measurements:  14.1 x 11.1 mm

From the very last of our splendid Italian Barite rough comes a magnificent gem in a relatively approachable size.  Not only is the color outstanding (the historic locality is well known for this shade but no longer produces rough), the cutting is extraordinary.  It is a competition level cut done by an Italian gentleman, who in the great tradition of Italian artists, will share his secrets with no one!  The level of polish is unprecedented for a softer material - visually the stone would fool you into believing it was Danburite or Topaz, a harder material on which a higher polish is easier to attain.  We consider ourselves lucky to perhaps offer one of these masterpieces per year, this is a true museum level gem that will hold its own against the finest gems of the species.
