A particularly fine pastel lavender gem whose color reminds one of the best of Vietnamese Spinel, but at a fraction of the cost. For anyone familiar with the historical aspects of the spinel / sapphire relationship, that is a situation not without some irony. Unheated and beautifully cut, the stone is bright and brilliant and has all the correct angles - no windowing whatsoever. Add in that the stone is completely clean as well and you have the total package; simply a wonderful stone at a reasonable cost.
