Nice deep fine purplish raspberry precision cut spinel
This spinel has been cut with its correct refractive index in order to achieve its maximum brilliance.
This spinel looks much nicer in real life than in the pictures, indeed a rare find.
In the gemstone industry, in the past, the tendency has been to maximize weight rather than brilliance. This stone is a good example of how much more brilliance you can get when using the correct refractives angles for a particular gemstone without paying for weight retention.
weight: 1.55 cts
size: 8.3 x 6.1 mm oval
clarity: very good
color: raspberry purple
