A magnificent gem blue Zircon that occupies a small and underappreciated niche in the market. The market values very deep color in these; essentially the darker the better - even when they become rather inky and have a tone that can mask the brilliance and dispersion of Zircon. This gem is graded as ‘light’; a tone that we absolutely love and that allows for the best of both worlds. The optical properties of Zircon are on full display as the stone is dazzling in motion; the medium blue gives a bodycolor that is both very appealing and icy cool. Imagine if a fine Aquamarine had a high luster and refractive index; indeed, the color and cut are perfect for this comparison. A gorgeous stone in a large and appealing size - the gem is loupe clean and the cutting is fresh and perfect. So very appealing.
