    Notes:
    This gem was cut by me from a 13.1 carat crystal section bought in 2009. It is unheated and untreated in any way. It has microscopic clear type inclusions very hard to see with an unaided eye. It is a very brilliant gem and as you can see picks up surrounding colors and reflects them back to your eyes. I missed my 7 am photographing time as that is when the sun has not come over the hillside. I was late and had to go into the shade therefore the leaves now are tinting every gem with a green flash; not bad on green gems but not good on blue and pink ones ! lol this is a very lovely gem and a very nice size for a statement ring; very close to a calibrated 13x11 and that mount will fit this easily with no large gaping reveals. Nice gem... Old prices also; I know I was offered this color last week in the rough for 20 dollars a gram. Lose half in cutting at least and then cutting costs; well you can do the math.. Oh and they were 1.5 to 2 gram pieces... 5 carats to the gram.
