    Gemstone: Blue Zircon - 16.33 Cts.

    Blue Zircons display one of the most attractive colors among gemstones. This stone has an intense blue coloration similar to Tourmalines and Aquamarines. This particular example is quite robust at nearly 17 carats and features a chic elongated cushion shape with a deep pavilion. The crown has brilliant facets and step cut facets on the pavilion. The stone displays an amazing brilliance as it has one of the highest refractive indices found in gemstones. As a common practice, this stunner did undergo heat treatment, but, without a doubt, the enhancement was worth the effort. There are a few chips along the girdle and to a few facet junctions on the pavilion. There is one feather inclusion on the girdle, but, otherwise, the gem is in good condition. This stone really needs to be viewed in person to gain a full appreciation of its substantial impact and beauty.
    Measurements: 13.18 x 10.05 x 10.62 mm, 16.33 cts.

    Provenance: The Jena Blue Collection
