A truly impressive and large example of this unusual color variety that came to light nearly a decade ago. There was never a large production and the material is inherently difficult - hard to cut and usually quite heavily included. This fine gem is one of the most successful larger stones we have ever seen - the clarity is very very good for the material and there are no fractures or large cleavage planes to distract the eye. Very gemmy and with a deep, consistent color. There were never many this nice.
