DescriptionFINE GEMSTONE: SPESSARTITE - 24.91 CT.
Spessartite (also known as Spessartine) is the member of the Garnet group with the richest, most saturated orange color and the highest brilliance. Until the gem "find" in Nigeria, Spessartites were a rare gemstone that were never very large. This fine Spessartite is a rich cinnamon gold-orange color with brilliant reflectance. It is very clean, with only a couple of small feathers to the side of the pavilion - they do not detract from the scintillating beauty of the stone. It is a very well cut cushion gemstone with a pineapple crown, measuring a sizable 17.0 x 14.0 mm, and is a hefty 24.91 carats. It is in excellent condition.
Estimate: $24,000 - $30,000.
