8.55 ct. Georgia Amethyst

Color:  Medium Dark Violetish-Purple Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Jackson's Crossroads, Wilkes Co., Georgia Cut:  Oval Brilliant
Treatments:  None Measurements:  16 x 12 mm

Developments at the mine have lead to a serious decline in the availability of good faceting rough over the last few years.  Gems from Jackson's Crossroads have a very crisp violet-purple bodycolor and are known for their 'blue flash'.  We were naturally a bit skeptical of this effect at first, but it is indeed present in most examples and is truly noticeable and attractive.  Very fine cutting, clean and a very large stone for such a fine and consistent color.  Additionally, these gems are absolutely not heated, in contrast to much of the Amethyst in the marketplace.  This lovely example is completely loupe clean and cut to perfection.
