Old Stock Mahenge Spinel Oval Cut 7.6x6mm
This piece comes from a bag of old and unsorted stock at my gem dealers that I periodically sift through for good pieces. This piece has a bit of neon but not as bright as some of the other pieces. What attracted me to this gem was a "hint" (no more) of peach together with enormous brilliance and clarity. This piece is Portuguese cut and with lots and lots of facets, which make it attract a lot of attention.

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.I am working on a marquis design now (art deco, something in the neighborhood of the Gotham ring), but if you'd like to set this immediately, we need to run with a more traditional design.
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.
