    Gemstone: Mint Tsavorite Garnet - 4.68 Cts.

    This may look like a tiny "Green Apple" Jolly Rancher, but it is, in fact, a gorgeous Tsavorite Garnet. This type of Garnet is known for its highly saturated green hue. Mint Tsavorites are a variety of a Grossular Garnet, which showcases a lighter green color. This light green hue is growing in popularity among collectors and getting harder to procure. Currently, any Tsavorites over about 5 carats are rare, which makes this 4.5+ carat example a real winner. No enhancements were necessary for this type of stone, as the color occurs naturally due to traces of Vanadium and Chromium. The stone has an elongated, fancy cushion shape with a mixed cut. The crown is brilliant cut, while the pavilion is step cut. This impactful stone is eye-clean with only the smallest of a nick on the girdle. With a rating of 6.5 - 7.5 rating on the Mohs Hardness Scale, this amazing stone would make the perfect ring.
    Measurements: 12.39 x 8.38 x 5.9 mm, 4.68 cts.

    Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000.
