    Notes:
    This gem was cut in Sri Lanka from my rough in 2001. The rough I bought from Nigeria in 1997. It is awesome stuff but when you get over 3 carats it gets darker than I like. This one at 3.11 is at the limit to my liking as many that were in the 7 and 8 carats I had cut; I had to re-cut them as they were black red and those will not sell. I think I have about 20 of them left I will have to re-work as they will not photograph. In real life they are pretty in the 5 carat range but in my business if they will not photograph you cannot give them away. Oh well I digress; this is a lovely one :) No treatments.
