A very unusual and beguiling gem Cassiterite from Sri Lanka. We almost never see these this large and this clean, however what is truly remarkable here is the color - a deep but distinct brownish-red. Given the higher optical properties of Cassiterite the red ‘flash’ of brilliance is quite apparent and we were immediately attracted to the stone when we saw it. A somewhat more unusual species to come out of Sri Lanka, the color and quality make this one downright rare and quite special. With GIA report.
