A simply stunning and essentially perfect example of this classic collector’s gem. The popularity of Benitoite has never waned and continues to increase year after year - this despite the difficulty in sourcing finer stones. The color of this gem is the absolute best you could hope for - both in hue and tone; a gorgeous medium dark violetish-blue. The gem is loupe clean and the cutting is a fantastic and fresh US job - this shape works particularly well with this tone and keeps it lively and bright. Absolutely nothing to detract.
