Spinel, Burmese 7.7mm Round
A much under appreciated gemstone, spinel has gained a lot of popularity recently. It's a beautiful gem, never treated or enhanced (yet), clean and sparkly, and hard enough for daily wear. This piece is Burmese, over one carat and a nice big size. The gem was recut after purchase.
Here are the specs:
Size: 7.67 x 4.81mm
Weight: 1.96 Ct
Per carat price: $500
Price for the gem: $980
As always, you have a two week inspection period when you are just buying the gem. Custom orders are non-refundable, however. (I'm happy to make you a ring or a pendant with this stone, but you might consider looking at it first. You can always ship it back for me to work on it.)
