NGC COMMENTS
A serious "stoplight red" gemstone. This stone puts the new production of African spinels to shame. Burma spinels do not come any redder. The color scan shows the stone is 95% red/orange coupled with a light 70 tone. Since the stone is ultra-saturated, it is very difficult to see the MI2 inclusions. The stone was cut shallow and looks like a 3 1/2 carter. The stone has a slight window as evidenced by the 50-60% brilliancy. The cutting and finish are typical Burmese standards. If this stone was an unheated Classic Burma ruby it could sell for over $50,000 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. AGL grading report signed by Cap.
