2.38 ct. California Spessartite

Color:  Medium Dark Orange Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Little Three Mine, Ramona, California Cut:  Cushion
Treatments:  None  Measurements:  8 x 6.4 mm

A superb stone from an outstanding US locale - the famed Little Three Mine In San Diego county.  The outstanding precision cut is particularly striking in combination with the deep and distinctive color.  This is the Little Three Mine at its best - larger, clean gems where never common and this was in the period when Spessartite from any locale in the world was somewhat unusual.  In fact, the emphasis was always on specimens (not on cutting rough) and Spessartite was unusual even here, Topaz being far more common.  Great size and quite competitive for an old Ramona stone of this quality.
