Taaffeite has long been the classic collector's gem.  One of the few species first identified as a faceted stone, still significantly rare and yet durable enough for use in jewelry.  In terms of color, one of the scarcest has to be the total lack of color - truly colorless Taaffeites are exceedingly hard to come by.  This is a fine example, well cut and with a pleasant brilliance.  A few insignificant inclusions that are quite low relief - greatly magnified by the photograph.  A double dose of the rare.
