    Description

    Gemstone: Spessartine Garnet - 14.88 Cts.
    Tanzania

    This nearly 15 carat Garnet is of the Spessartine variety and is referred to as a "Malaia or Malaya Garnet." This noteworthy variety of Garnet is very rare and is a mix of both Spessartine and Pyrope with top examples being mined from Tanzania. This remarkable gemstone displays the coveted orangey-red hue. The color presented here is well-balanced, nicely saturated and a medium tone. The stone features a rounded octagonal shape with mixed cut facets. The exceptional gemstone features excellent scintillation and is only very slightly included with one tiny inclusion near the crown; otherwise, this fine gemstone is in pristine condition. It is easy to understand why this variety of Garnet garners attention. This material really lends itself to be set into a stunning piece of jewelry.
    Measurements: 15.25 x 15.23 x 8.59 mm, 14.88 cts.


    Estimate: $15,000 - $25,000.
