4.49 ct. Andalusite

Color:  Medium Dark Brownish-Green / Orange-Brown Clarity:  Slightly Included
Origin:  Brazil Cut:  Round Brilliant
Treatments:  None  Measurements:  10.1 mm

Andalusite is a rare and attractive gem material that is often overlooked.  This is despite the fact that this species is one of the most pleochroic in the gem world - the directional colors are so disparate that gems appear to have two separate hues visible face up.  Other than bi-color stones, this is almost never seen in other gem species.  This always shows to excellent effect in larger rounds - as is the case here; both the brownish-green and reddish copper are fully visible face up.  No inclusions per se, just a slight bit of haze that barely softens the brilliance.  Fine stone at a very competitive price.
