1.02 ct. Sri Lankan Color Change Spinel
A magnificent Spinel that is as close
to a perfect example of a Sri Lankan color change gem as is possible.
Firstly, the change is complete and very striking - these can be 'so so' and are
often overly dark. This second issue is eliminated by the 'perfect' size -
had the rough cut a two or three carat gem, it would indeed have been too dark.
That brings us to the cutting - a US custom job which is always a
refreshing change for Sri Lankan material. Add in the fact that the gem is
completely eye clean and what else can we say?
