 2.21 ct. Sri Lankan Color Change Spinel

Color:  Medium Dark Violet-Blue / Purple Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Sri Lanka Cut:  Oval Mixed
Treatments:  None Measurements:  8.2 x 7.1 mm

Recently we have been able to offer a few color shifting Spinel from renewed mining in Vietnam; this month we have this superb example of a classic Sri Lankan color change gem.  These are highly distinctive stones with their near complete change from violet-blue to purple.  Here we have an outstanding and essentially perfect example of this type - the change is distinct and complete, the cutting is absolute precision and the gem is flawless.  The cutting deserves special note here, very rarely is such care taken with Sri Lankan gems, there is absolutely no windowing or asymmetries whatsoever.  Moreover, the size is great - while these are scarce in any size, 2+ ct. stones are truly rare.  There is simply nothing to detract here - we rarely can find such superlative examples.
