0.51 ct. Tanzanian Purple Kornerupine

Color:  Medium Dark Violet-Purple / Bluish-Green Clarity:  Slightly Included
Origin:  Tanzania Cut:  Cushion
Treatments:  None Measurements:  5.6 x 4.4 mm

From the very limited find a couple of years back comes this outstanding example of this unusually colored Kornerupine.  Stones from this find are extremely pleochroic - showing and unusual combination of bluish-green in one direction and a purplish/lilac shade in another.  This gem is one of the precious few we have seen cut to showcase the purple as the dominant face-up hue AND it has one of the deepest, most intense purples we have ever seen with these.  The bluish-green is confined to the very edges.  1/2 carat stones are large from this find, very few were found and then to have it with such an outstanding color.  A connoisseur's stone for certain.
