2.01 Cushion Unheated Madagascar Ruby

The 2.01 Unheated Ruby was was of the first discoveries from the Vatomandri mine area on the east coast of Madagascar. Many believe the material is gorgeous, almost luminescent. The material is crystalline and close to Burma goods in appearance. The other original source, Andilamena, the stones tend to be redder but regretfully too dark in tone. The best Madagascar stones give a pink/red Burma look.
This is the first time this stone is back on the market in over 20 years. The stone is graded as a 5/70. If Burma, the stone would grade as a 3/70. Email us if you have questions about this comment. The stone is pretty red at 65% red. The stone is a desirable 70 tone and never blacks-out and looks stunning in all lights. The clarity is MI1 but is mostly silk that gives the stone a soft desirable Burmese appearance. The stone has typical Madagascar cutting, finish and solid 60% average brilliancy. Many consider the 72.5% depth perfect. The Total Quality Integration Rating (TQIR) Very Good or 3.5. These factors make this stone desirable. A nice diversification for a ruby gem portfolio or for someone who wants a Burma ruby look at a major discount.
