This is an incredible stone in both it's exceptional color, cut/polish and clarity.
Fat oval cab perfectly beveled and polished, looks like candy!
It has the color of ripe watermelon Andy’s among the rarest rhodochrosite on the planet.
This material is very rare in higher clarity. Less than 1% of Rhodochrosite is translucent, period. Especially with almost no imperfection. To find a gem of this clarity in this size and masterfully cabochoned Gem is a rarity indeed.
We have a teardrop shaped cab from the same rough, equally high quality, which may be available.
This is the last from this rough. Award Winning American Cutter
