DescriptionGemstone: Baryte - 14.28 Cts.
This is an impressively large cut and faceted Baryte gemstone from Colorado. Baryte is a very soft material making it extremely difficult to cut and facet into gemstones. It clearly took a patient and skilled cutter to create this beautiful stone. This 14+ carat gem features a modern cushion cut with a step cut crown and brilliant cut pavilion. The pleasing blue-gray hue draws the viewer in and then when tilted and viewed through the table unique zoning inclusions become evident. The stone is included and has one tiny chip to the girdle, but otherwise this stone is in great condition.
Measurements: 14.72 x 10.42 x 8.95 mm, 14.28 cts.
Provenance: The Jena Blue Collection
Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000.
