1.43 ct. Sri Lankan Green Spinel

Color:  Dark Very Slightly Bluish Green Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Sri Lanka Cut:  Oval Mixed
Treatments:  None  Measurements:  7.1 x 5.8 mm

This odd and beguiling color, very nearly the closet Spinel ever comes to a true green, is something we see only occasionally, and then almost always on Burmese stones.  This one is actually Sri Lankan, found in a parcel of the typically darker and de-saturated reds, purples and blues that are often found there.  Clean and quite respectably cut, it is an attractive and surprisingly brilliant stone in a fine size.  These are certainly oddities for the connoisseur of Spinel - we never see many.
