    Notes:
    This gem was cut by me from a 5.03 carat piece of rough bought in 2000. It has been traditionally heated to remove the silk and it got most of it. But it had a fracture at one end therefore the offset culet to remove it completely. The stone has a personality; sometimes you see such a lovely royal blue and sometimes you do not. Therefore the price. But most of the time like 90% it is a very lovely rich royal blue that will look awesome in a white metal. Everyone that deals with me knows I tell you all I know; the good, the bad, and the ugly and this is not an ugly gem whatsoever.. Plus it will fit a standard 7 x 5 mount. Hand shot is the most realistic photo of the gem that white background makes everything look darker.
