5.12 ct. Malagasy
10.5 x 8.6 mm
The most perfectly faceted example of
this gem species we have ever encountered. While Celestite is not exactly
rare in specimens, it is quite unusual in faceted gems. It is both quite
soft and very difficult to cut, leaving a finite number of those willing to
facet these. That said, this is some impressive work done by one of the
very best - the luster and brilliance is nearly unbelievable for the species.
A classic very light blue hue, this one is a treasure.
