0.46 ct. Tanzanian Green / Lilac Kornerupine

Color:  Medium Dark Bluish-Green / Purple Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Tanzania Cut:  Round Brilliant
Treatments:  None Measurements:  5.4 x 4.3 mm

This variety of Kornerupine became available several years ago with very little production since.  This brilliant little gem showcases the dynamic pleocroism of the material - a soft blue-green is one direction and a fantastic lilac shade in the other.  It's a very odd and attractive mix of colors, essentially unique in the gem world.  As one of the larger clean stones we have had the great advantage here is that both of these colors are quite visible face-up.  Most of the rough was very very small and anything above 1/4 ct. was a decent size for a clean stone.  Unusual and really a fantastic gem.
