A simply stunning gemstone that will take pride of place in a lucky person's collection. The gem is eye clean and has a superbly rich color, deep in the brown part of the spectrum. The stone is very well cut with a large number of tiny facets that light the gem up with many different tones of brown, as it is moved around in your hand. The brown itself is a cognac color, saturated perfectly to have real depth without falling prey to the darkness some large gems exhibit. Polish and overall finish are excellent and the gem has never been set, only displayed as part of my collection. The matchstick is in the photo to try and give some idea of scale; this gem is 3.4 centimeters long.
