1.15 Unenhanced Oval Burma Spinel

Description
This an old Burmese stone back for liquidation. A no treatment/no clarity enhancement "gem red" spinel. The color grade is 3.5 (in the old AGL system, this stone would probably be 65% red) with a 80 tone. The stone has MI1 inclusions, but hard to see because the stone is so saturated. The stone has a 82% depth with 100% brilliancy. Pretty hard to find a 100% brilliancy in any colored gemstone. Of course, 100% brilliancy is more common in white diamonds. The cutting and finish are unbelievable for goods from Burma. We had the stone recut/re-polished and lost a lot of weight to achieve these outstanding numbers. If this stone was an unheated Classic Burma ruby it could sell for $16,000 per carat. This gem is attractively priced at less than 20% of an unheated Classic Burma ruby. This is a gem for a true spinel connoisseur or could be mounted in an awesome ring.
