Every once in a while you see a stone that needs no qualification whatsoever - no 'well, the color is spectacular, the cutting is native, however' or 'only a smallfracture', etc. This one is just spectacular. Burmese stones are exceptionally hard to source and then of this magnificent color - a rich red just touched with an orangish modifier, the classic 'flame' Spinel color. And how often do you see this with precision US cutting? Oh, and completely clean as well!
Kidding aside, a superb stone and one that is pleasure in person. Red Spinel from Mogok is the stuff of gemological legend and, with this stone in-hand, it is not at all difficult to see why. Beautiful in all regards. With AGL Spinel Brief stating the gem is natural and untreated.
