    Description

    Very Fine Gemstone: Morganite - 114.39 Ct.
    Alto Ligonha, Zambezia Province, Mozambique

    Depending on orientation, this faceted Morganite looks either like a shield or a crystalline arrowhead. Whatever image it inspires, the actual shape of cut is described as triangular in a rose cut/modified brilliant cut style. The raw material for this smoky pink gem was found in 2005 and was subsequently cut and polished to its current dimensions by master gem cutter John Dyer, winner of 44 international cutting awards. The precision of the cutting on this stone, along with the fine polish, takes the gem to another level of perfection. In addition, it is eye clean with exceptional transparency. An AGL Cert # CS 65949 comes with this extremely fine lapidary work of art.
    Measurements: 41.15 x 30.93 x 21.68 mm, 114.39 cts.
    Offered at no reserve.

    Provenance: Rainbow of Africa Collection
    Accompanied by AGL Certificate # CS 65949
