DescriptionA screaming "stoplight red" gem spinel. The stone is 70% red and 25% orange or 95% red orange. This color combination is sought after by many connoisseurs , who consider this the ultimate color combination. The gemstone has no brown or grey. The stone has a perfect 75 tone, an open color that never blacks out. The stone has minor eye visual inclusions at MI1 clarity. The stone was cut slightly shallow and looks like a 3 1/2 carter. The stone has a slight window as evidenced by the 50-60% brilliancy. The gem has good cutting and finish numbers for a Burmese stone. If this stone was an unheated Classic Burma ruby it would sell for at least $70,000 per carat. This gem is attractively priced at slightly less than 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.
