NGC Comment: This is an old Burma stone back for liquidation from an estate with a new Spinel Brief. It took the collector years to acquire these stones. This is a top example of a gem red spinel. Not only is the stone gem red but the tone is medium-dark and does not "black-out." The clarity is moderately included but is eye clean because the stone is so saturated. The stone has high brilliancy and good cutting/finish. If this stone was an unheated Classic Burma ruby it could sell for over $15,000 per carat. This gem is attractively priced at about 10% of an unheated Classic Burma ruby. This is a gem for a true spinel connoisseur or could be mounted in a killer ring.
