Comment: Hessonite has been one of my favourite gems since early times. I think here one can see why: This unique intense color play, with its fine watery crystal and the hessonite-only glimmer from inside is found only here. Still a secret amongst connoisseurs, hence reasonable in price but never mundane. To my knowledge untouched by the treatment industry. One of the most famous gems in antic mythology (back to Homer). I predict a great future for hessonite once the fakes and mutant gems have been shaken out of the market and real money will be paid for natural gems only. No visible inclusions, well cut and fully coloured.
