This variety of Kornerupine became available a decade ago with very little production since.  This brilliant little gem showcases the dynamic pleocroism of the material - a soft blue-green is one direction and a fantastic lilac shade in the other.  Both of these colors are visible face-up and make for a fantastic gem - in case, a deep lilac core surrounded by the bluish-green.  These have always been scarce sizes about 1/2 ct.
