Not only does this gem have the most spectacular color, but it is also cut in the most unique manner. The stone preserves the natural outline of a Burmese Spinel crystal - in profile you can see that one side of the crystal has been polished as the pavilion and the other cut down with a small table facet. Really quite remarkable - this may indeed by an antique piece, we acquired it as part of a collection. We actually wish more of these were cut in this manner, it is both simple and stunning. The color deserves mention again, among the best we have seen.
