DescriptionGemstone: Red Zircon - 9.27 Cts.
This charming red Zircon weighs in at just over 9 carats and has an appealing brownish-red hue with pinkish-purple undertones. The stone has a high refractive index, which creates the amazing luster and visible fire. The gemstone displays nice color saturation and balance. The gem was cut into a cushion shape with brilliant facets. Great care went into the cutting process to create a nice color balance, while reducing the double refraction. The stone is both eye and loupe-clean and in pristine condition. This natural example is as good as likely to be seen in this material.
Measurements: 11.60 x 11.34 x 7.59 mm, 9.27 cts.
Provenance: The Jena Blue Collection
Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000.
