1.63 "Classic" Mogok Unheated Burma Ruby

Description
An older pigeon blood red Mogok gemstone back for liquidation. In the old days, Burma ruby used to be primarily red orange. For the last 40 years, 99% of the production has been red pink or red purple. However, the 1.63 is one of the rare gems over the last 25 years ago came direct from Mogok that are 70% red and 15% orange. The stone is a perfect 75 tone and never blacks-out and looks vivid red in all lights. The clarity is LI2 so the saturated stone is super clean. The stone has typical Burmese cutting. The stone has a high 70% brilliancy. Despite the fact the stone is 100.6% deep, the Total Quality Integration (TQR) is Excellent. The 1996 AGL report is signed by C.R. "Cap" Beesley, often considered to be a collector's item. These factors make this stone special. A serious gemstone for a portfolio or to mount in an upscale jewelry piece.
