It pains me to list this. The color on this thing is such a pure cherry red. It's not brick red, or orange red, it's red red. It flashes this incredible spectral red very well in direct sunlight. It will show a deep red body color in diffuse light. Thanks to the precision cutting, it will even show pure red sparkles around the edges in low indoor light.
It was precision cut in the US in a fantastic modified Jeff Graham design with a lower crown to get better light return.
I really hate to sell it, but it's just too dark for me. It gets plenty of red flash in intense light, but never lights up evenly all at once. In most lighting the pure red flash cascades down the stone--it's a very dark stone. In lower lighting it blacks out, except for some red sparkle. If you love dark and pure red, this one is for you.
Weight: 1.86 ct.
Cut: Jeff Graham oval design
Origin: South East Asia
Clarity: VVS2/S1? It's borderline eye clean. There are a couple of inclusion near the corner of the table that you can see on close inspection. They're harder to spot from arm's length, but you can find them if you're looking for them. I don't think they detract much.
Color: very dark, pure red.
Price: $250 (includes any shipping/Insurance)
I'm a private collector, but I'll allow a 3-day inspection of the stone during which you can send it back for a refund (minus shipping and $25 as a running around fee).
