0.76 ct. TW Complete Benitoite Color Suite

Color:  Various Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  San Benito Co., California Cut:  Round Brilliant
Treatments:  Heat (orange only) Measurements:  2.50 mm

Certainly one of the most unusual and rare sets we have offered.  In the past we have been able to source some fine examples of these color suites which include the full range of tone for gem Benitoite.  From the deep violetish-blue through some lighter examples and all the way through to a near colorless stone - actually quite a decent rarity in and of itself.  Well, here we have been able to include the rare heated orange stones - it is a little known fact that some colorless Benitoites will heat treat to a shade of orange; an an exotic change that no other gem material is capable of.  So, here the suite has been extended to include three orange stones in tones from very light to medium dark.  With the orange change being so selective and unpredictable, it is exceedingly difficult to put something like this together.  All stones are clean and full round brilliants.  Outstanding.
