5.12 ct. Malagasy Celestite

Color:  Faint Blue Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Madagascar Cut:  Cushion
Treatments:  None Measurements:  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.
