Firstly, HIGH RES. PHOTOS AND VIDEO ALSO AVAILABLE ON MY ETSY SHOP.
1.03ct natural (standard heat treatment only) Mozambique ruby of 5.32 x 5.77 mm facing up.
The cut is good - not too shallow - with VS clarity. There's one carbon-like inclusion in the middle but the colour sort of makes it hard to see.
Less than ideal colour - way too dark in my opinion, also with a purplish tint - but it is hard to find 1+ct natural ruby in this price.
I guess this piece is really price for the size.
Certified Chanthaburi lab just to make sure it indeed is heat-treated only.
Roughly listing it for USD$300/ct (for a carat natural ruby!) price ... = approx. AUD$450.
