1.54 ct. 'Andalusite'
Completely our trio of fine
collector's Sapphire this month is this very intriguing stone - now let us
explain the liberty we took with the name above . The color is almost
beyond definition - in various lighting the stone will shift from an autumnal
yellowish-green to an unusual woody brown hue. In most light, a mix of
these is present giving the stone an almost Andalusite-like appearance that we
have not seen before in gem Sapphire. You can see this in the photos where
the center of the stone remains brown while the edges take on this green tinge.
Quite well cut and clean, this one is surely unique. An oddity among the
legendary gems from Sri Lanka.
