1.71 ct. Andalusite
Precision cutting is
the exception in this material, one of the few gem species in which 'native'
cutting remains the norm. This one is a stunner; bright and essentially
perfect with great angles and superb luster. The color here strongly
favors the reddish-brown pleochroic color of Andalusite, the green tones are
confined to the very edges - interestingly, this is almost exactly the opposite
of one expects. A stone in which a visual guess may be very deceptive!
