A large and particularly fine example of this species. Firstly, the color is great - a strong yellow that is not subject to the usual greyish modifier. Secondly, the cutting is great for a somewhat difficult material - these can be shallow or asymmetric. Finally, the stone is large! We haven’t encountered this quality of color and cut in stones of this size previously. An underappreciated rarity for sure.
