These have become extremely popular gems for us, and it is not difficult to see why.  The color is so rich - a deep, saturated purple with a great reddish flash.  This is the color that is meant when enthusiasts use the old 'siberian' term.  Great size and a fine, precision cut, there is nothing at all to detract here.   Moreover, in a world of seemingly ever-present treatment, it is comforting to know that these stones are completely natural and untreated.  Calibrated size for easy use in jewelry.
