DescriptionThis is a large "Classic" Mogok Burma ruby. The stone is not heated. The 60% red is not stoplight red but still a beautiful pink red gemstone. The stone is a perfect 70 tone and never blacks-out and looks good in all lights-even at night. Some collectors prefer these lighter color/lighter tones stones. The clarity is MI2 so you can see some inclusions with your eyes, mostly naturals on the back of the gem. A good goldsmith could hide. The stone has good cutting and finish and a high 70-80% brilliancy. The Total Quality Integration (TQIR) is Excellent to Very Good (2.5). A seriously large gemstone for a gem portfolio or would look fantastic mounted. Great "bang for buck" gem. In June, 2021, a 3.21 gem red unheated Burma Mogok Ruby sold for $150,000 per carat at Bonham's Hong Kong auction.
