    Description

    Gemstone: Chrysoberyl - 12.07 Cts.
    Sri Lanka

    Chrysoberyl gemstones are considered exotic. This descriptor is due to its unique characteristics. This Chrysoberyl hails from Sri Lanka, which is one of the top producers for this material. This fine example features a beautiful yellowish-green body color. The trillion shaped stone has been expertly cut, as this material is notoriously difficult to cut and polish. The vibrant stone displays excellent color, which is nicely saturated. The gem has a mixed cut with brilliant cut facets on the crown and step cut facets on the pavilion and displays nice brilliance and scintillation. Chrysoberyl is further prized for being both hard and tough, making it ideal for wear in jewelry. This 12.07-carat gem is in pristine condition.
    Measurements: 17.57 x 13.36 x 8.22 mm, 12.07 cts.
