    Notes:
    Well this one was fun; this gem used to be an oval in the 3.61 carat range with a crack right down the middle. The color was so intense i could not pass up trying to make something out of it. this color is NOT common ! i have had this gem on my bench since 2000. I broke off the bad side and there is sat forever... Finally I did it; I made up a cut to maximize the yield and color of this fine gem. I am sure it is basic heat as that is more-than-likely why it cracked down the middle. So here it is; and was it worth my time; yes it was as it is lovely ... I do not like wasting FATHER's creations :)
