Violet Spinel from Vietnam Matched Pair Elongated Pear

  • 2,26900

This listing is a bit off the beaten path. These spinel are from the Trumchun mines in Vietnam. There's not much production of this type of material. I've never seen this stuff before (got it in Tucson obviously). It has excellent cutting, no window, Portuguese faceting, and no grey.

I would describe this color as a light violet, closer to lavender than pink but not lavender like the previous pairs. I just retook these pictures and I think the hand shots are most accurate.

Very clean material. The seller for these works out of the region and it takes him months to match up a pair, so he had very few, after 12 months of collection. This was the only pair in this particular hue.

You have a two week inspection period with my gems, during which you can return them 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 these gems. 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.
