    Vietnam, Oregon, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, Nigeria

    This mixed parcel consists of eight gemstones of varying size and shape. The Zircon comes from Vietnam, weighs 4.84 carats, measures 10.5 x 6.8 mm, has a lovely brownish orange color with good dispersion. The Sunstone weighs 3.69 carats and is an excellent brilliant cut oval that measures 11.7 x 7.8 mm. The Sunstone's inclusions are copper flakes, and the color is green, with a bit of orange color - the rarest color for this species. The light green Amblygonite is a brilliant cut oval that measures 10.5 x 8.4 mm and weighs 2.48 carats - it is slightly included, pale green in color and shows signs of heat treatment. The Lot also includes a colorless, emerald cut Danburite weighing 4.65 carats with flawless clarity that measures 12.1 x 9.0 mm. There is a slight chip along one meet, but that is not a distraction for this rare gemstone. The rectangular, barion cut Pink Topaz weighs an impressive 7.90 carats, measures 12.4 x 8.8 m and has flawless clarity with a few inconsequential nicks along the facet meets. There is a gorgeous pear shaped Beryl, cut as a brilliant step mix, measuring 14.0 x 12.4 mm, weighing 6.58 carats with pale blue-green coloration. Another rare stone in the parcel is a light green, eye clean Euclase in a modified kite shape, weighing 4.58 carats, measuring 4.0 x 9.1 mm - it is a very good custom cut gem. The final gemstone in the group is a cushion cut Chrysoberyl weighing 6.8 carats, which has a distinct greenish-yellow coloring and is eye clean. It measures 10.6 x 9.0 mm, is well polished and was cut by renowned rare gem cutter Mike Gray. All stones in this rare gemstone parcel are in good to excellent condition.
    Total Carat Weight: 41.52 cts.
