    Gemstones

    Gemstone: Hessonite Garnet - 32.33 Cts.
    Sri Lanka

    Hessonite Garnets are known for an intense dark orange hue and feature the appropriate nickname "cinnamon stone." This stone is unbelievably large and comes from the renowned locality of Sri Lanka. This 32+ carat oval shaped gem has a modified brilliant crown and a fancy cut pavilion. It displays the most vibrant orange-brown hue, which is well-balanced and highly saturated. Due to the nature of the material, it displays a nice luster with subtle flashes of red. The gem is slightly included, but these inclusions resemble "stardust" adding more magic to this already mystical stone. There is only one very tiny nick on the table, but, otherwise, this incredible stone is in excellent condition.
    Measurements: 21.53 x 18 x 10.96 mm, 32.33 cts.
