    Notes:
    Uchuchaqua mine material from Lima, Peru. I cut a 9.7 carat gem from a crystal from this same mine. I thought it was going to be this burnt orange like this crystal but man was I fooled. It made a very intense red-pin-orange gem that was outstanding. One never knows until they come off the dop. This is a dogs tooth terminated crystal that should make a very fine gem. I usually follow the shape and do an odd brilliant pear shaped cut to save weight and get the life out of the gem.
