5.03 ct. Color Change Garnet

Color:  Medium Dark Purplish Red/Purple-Violet Clarity:  Eye Clean to Slightly Included
Origin:  E. Africa Cut:  Oval Brilliant
Treatments:  None Measurements:  11.9 x 9.5 mm

A most unusual stone, this gem was cut from a piece of rough which was unearthed at least 20 years ago - see the photo below.  The color shift on this gem is stunning and is considerably more pronounced than in the photo.  The daylight color (right) actually has violet-blue highlights which make it one of the most beguiling colors we have seen in Garnet.  This one has been carefully cut in the US to exacting standards and is most surely a museum grade piece.
