Comment: Creamy yellow pendant gem for little dough in this size and clarity. A good example of hidden(ite) treasures offered beyond the classic varieties and colours. Hiddenite is an extra-rare type of spodumene (like kunzite but much much rarer). 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 $). A setting in yellow gold would be pretty, 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, a slight pear-typical window but no ugly fish-eye, always better than image, no treatments. Ask us for a handshot if you are interested.
