An especially beautiful example of a South African Stone. The colors from this deposit range from deeper brownish-red to these bright orangish-pinks which approximate the look of classic Colorado stones. What sets these apart is the lingering red modifier which gives the color an intensity that is truly special. Add in a precision US cut and you have one of the best South African Rhodos that we have seen in recent memory. Extremely dispersive and bright - a perfect cut and proportion for this material.
