Mahenge Spinel Oval, Neon Mahenge Spinel, 8x6mm Mahenge
This is the one and only larger piece of Mahenge I could get in Tanzania, it is from a lot of 6 pieces (production is slim to none). Even though I undercut one step in terms of pricing, it was expensive. But it is a gorgeous piece. The color is super saturated, essentially exactly what you would be looking for in a Mahenge.
This is one of the nicest. I will be listing them out in the next few days.
Measurements: 7.53 x 5.84 x 4.92mm

You have a two week inspection period with this gem, during which you can return it for a full refund, no questions asked. I can also make you a custom order. Custom orders are not refundable, which is why I suggest that you get the gem first and look at it. I can always do something with it afterwards. Or you can hire a local jeweler.
Please let me know if you'd like a certificate with this gem. I would take it to GEMLABS on 47th Street, but it adds a few days to shipping. A full certificate is $40 and a mini certificate is $20 (the latter will give you an identification and certifies lack of treatment). I'd bill you via paypal.
