This extraordinary material is as sought after as it is hard to acquire. Stones are almost always very small and irregularly shaped - every tiny of bit of weight in a finished piece is money. This stone is something we simply never see - a gorgeous and clean top color stone with a correctly proportioned and fresh cut. We simply can’t stress the rarity of these enough - this intense, better-than-sapphire blue color is superb and very unique. Moreover, a stone above 1/4 carat is not insignificant from this locale - 0.05-0.10 ct. would be much more common. Extraordinary piece indeed.
