This red spinel was cut from an extremely old parcel of spinels form Mahenge Tanzania. The spinel weighs 1.22 Carats and is cut into a marquise shape that measures a calibrated 10.0 x 5.0mm. The color on this one really ranges depending on the lighting source outdoors it is a fireball due to intense red florescence, indoors it is a bit more subdued but still a beautiful gem. Under a 10x loupe this gem doesn't have an inclusion to be seen! A great gem in a popular, uncommon shape that is priced extremely well!
