Comment: With the classical 'watermark' of Tanzanian rubies (and sapphires): blue, or rather violet, colour zones. The collector may note that this is also found in Namya rubies (Burma) but there usually in the centre of the crystal. Violet is considered a noble secondary hue in wild ruby: see the second close-up into the middle of the stone, there the camera separates blue from red as well (not the colour zone). In this 1.19 the visible violet area sits on the outer edge of the girdle, shaped like a whale or dolphin. The position means that is sat on the crystal's surface and also that it can be covered in jewellery, if the owner so wishes. You may guess that I would NOT do so, but, on the contrary, show the violet off as a sign of an untreated ruby since the zone would dissolve in heat. The colour zone aside, this oval ruby comes in a better-than-common cut, less silk and more brilliancy. The colour is in my opinion, just perfect: red with an aggressive pinkish undertone and a shipload of fluorescence. Normal inclusions (colourless bubbles) are visible only under the lens (and on our merciless images).
