NGC COMMENTS
NGC Comment: This is a top red/orange spinel with approximately 95% of the stone being red/orange. This color combination is sought after by many connoisseurs. The gemstone has no brown or grey. The stone has a perfect 75 tone, an open color that never blacks out. The stone is eye clean at LI2-MI1 clarity. The stone has a high 70-80% brilliancy and really high cutting and finish numbers for a Burmese gem. If this stone was an unheated Classic Burma ruby it would sell for at least $50,000 per carat. This gem is attractively priced at slightly at 10% of an unheated Classic Burma ruby. For the true spinel collector or client who wants the Burma ruby look for a fraction of the price..
