    Notes:
    This gem was cut by me from a 4.01 carat alluvial rough i got in 2000. This was a huge parcel for me as it was over 10000 carats of unheated alluvial rough. I am getting near the end of the bag but it sure has been fun as i do not think any 2 were alike. oh the good ole days of buying untreated rough... This is a very unusual but lively gem as it seems to change all sorts of tone and colors depending on the lighting conditions. What a bear to photograph. No treatments in any way; a excellent ring or pendant gem. This is the material that started the Be heating debacle... But this is untreated...
