A beautiful example of this distinctive color from Luc Yen.  There are, in fact, very few gem materials that capable of this hue - intensely saturated, but quite light in tone.  These are very popular with their light and bright look.  The stone is a fine size and is well cut - there is a fingerprint type veil under close magnification (hence the clarity) but this is almost imperceptible face-up, so the stone is a great look for the cost.
