    Notes:
    I bought this gem in a parcel of poorly cut gems from my contact in Sri Lanka last year. This gem was 1.99 carats and it looked like it had been dragged down a concrete sidewalk by a drunk. It had every problem imaginable and to me i think it was such a test i just had to have my hand at it. It was horribly shallow as i had to put an open culet on it just to keep the size decent; but in all honesty; the color is very cool and the size is not as bad as I thought it would be. It has had basic heat only and by the looks of the crude cutting it may have been placed in charcoal and thrown in a fire as they do some strange heating methods in some locations. But it is what it is and it is not as bad as it was !
