Comment: Giant cream yellow pendant gem for little dough in this size and clarity. A good example of hidden treasures offered beyond the classic varieties and colours. Note, that this gem is visually much bigger than, say, a 17 carat sapphire, because Spodumene has a relatively low gravity, making each carat count double (not to speak of $). Would be pretty in yellow gold, perhaps 22k for a change giving it even more subtle yellow softness. A halo of diamonds around and you have a $50.000-looking jewelry from Dior or Cartier, only you paid 20% with no compromises in quality or appearance, rather, on the contrary, you may hand down a 1000sqm rainforest certificate to your kids and a fully documented gemstone. No visible inclusions, perfect hand-cut with a trillion facets, no window (except a slight tilt window), always better than image, no treatments. Ask us for a handshot if you are interested.
