Unusual color spinel 2.48 carat cushion

$300

Item sold
 

Here's some color for today ! This stone started life with me as a 13 carat rough which was sold to me as "internally flawless". Hmmm, right. Anyway, after removing all of the parts that weren't flawless I ended up with a 2 1/2 carat finished stone. I'm not really sure what to call this color. It's sort of a cinnamon/pink with flashes of orange, red and even blue when viewed outside. It turned out a bit on the dark side, but in incandescent lighting the reflective flashes from the pavilion look like cinnamon sparks popping from a fire. The 1st picture in tweezers is outside, the second is under a point source halogen light and the third picture is under fluorescent lighting.

I can't really capture the character of this stone in any of the pictures, but I can say that my daughter really likes this one, (not too unusual, but she likes the unusual stones more than the standard flawless 10 carat rubies and such). I've set the price at just slightly over my cost for the rough, so if you want a bargain on a good sized unusual stone this may be your cup 'o tea. Oh, the size is around 8.5mm across the sides and 9.5mm tip to tip and around 5.5mm deep.

Looking at stone I know why I don't agree with the market forces that say it has to be 'X' colour to cost this much and so on. Beautifull is beautifull. I want it.

I can. Every once in a while I succumb to the lure of E-Bay and this piece of rough was acquired there. The seller has some very nice backlit pictures and must have Photo Shopped the inclusions out. They claimed that this piece only had one fracture and when I received it that one fracture was only the most evident one. I decided to keep and cut it just to see what this color would turn out like and I had to whittle it WAY down to get past all of the small fractures around the edges. The rough on this one cost something like $197, so I figure $300 for a custom cut on the piece should be attractive to most people having a taste for different colors. We'll see...it may end up as a navel stone if I decide to take up belly dancing. I'll bet everyone would like to see pictures of that!

Yes, it is. If you decide to get it and find that it's not to your taste just send it on back for a refund. Pictures are O.K., but they never really show you what a stone looks like when it's in your hands.

Congrats on getting a spinel for your engagement ring! I have a spinel e-ring as well (mine is purple) and I LOVE it! I think spinels are amazing and WAY under-appreciated. Please post pics once your ring is ready!
