    Notes:
    This gem was re-cut by me on a whim that I could make this dark thing better ? Well it is better than it was; but not what I had hoped for. This gem was 8.7 carats when I bought it in 2008. It was almost black deep pavilion and no life but i could see the color was an unusual red purple. So i took a gamble as it was not expensive as rough that dark. It is priced at what i paid before cutting it; The gem does have more life as i did some things like open the table large to allow more light in; took it 2 degrees above critical angle on the pavilion mains, etc. It is a nice sized gem and surely worth the money; even at the always on sale price. So if you like saturated but not black gems with size; this will make one nice signature ring gem.. No treatments.
