1.17 ct. Mahenge Spinel

Color:  Medium Dark Pink Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Mahenge, Tanzania Cut:  Round Brilliant
Treatments:  None Measurements:  6.1mm

The pink gems found at Mahenge are unlike any other Spinel in terms of their sheer level of saturation - the have already become the standard by which fine pinks are judged.  The color intensity of this material is almost unbelievable, the word intense barely covers it.  Not only is example that top, vivid pink, but it is a round - the most desirable, and equally rare, cut for these.  Oh, and it is loupe clean as well!  There are literally dozens of pear shapes, ovals and even trillions for every one of these that is a round.  The last photo below shows the dazzling red fluorescence under UV light - it is extremely strong. Superb stone.
