What makes this gem special? This is such rare material from the Umba Valley. The rough has been almost all exhausted and no significant amounts are being discovered. The quality of Malaya/Umbalite/Pyrope garnet rough on the market is either really not Malaya and misidentified, or brownish hued lesser quality or included material of small size, or hoarded material that is very expensive when it makes it to market. This is old stock. Gems photographed in 360 degree diamond viewer will not show full color, but will show the cut and any inclusions in the gem at high magnification.
