4.56 ct. Grayish-Violet Sri Lankan Spinel

Color:  Dark Grayish Violet-Blue Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Sri Lanka Cut:  Oval Portuguese
Treatments:  None  Measurements:  11.7 x 9.5 mm

A very large example of these classically de-saturated Sri Lankan Spinels.  The color is a mix of steely blue and violet, both rather dark and with quite a bit of shift in varying lights - the kind of look that really no other gem material displays.  Nicely cut and still respectably brilliant, the size is excellent and offers a great deal of presence for the cost.  These were quite widespread for a many years, particularly in smaller sizes but have now become noticeably more scarce.
