Comment: This is the other side of fine hessonite which I mentioned before (compare with CHES253), the red-orange type, glowing and glittering in all light-settings but never blacking out. A few colorless bubbles become visible only under a lens, the hand-cut is as perfect as they come, no window, no treatments. It must be said that this color is more frequently found in hessonite, though usually with more or less brown: but NO brown in this 2.03 carat. Still, this red-orange variety is less expensive than the bright golden one, and a very different character, mystic and often requires a second viewing. It sparkles and glows like the last moments of a golden sunset, but reveals its full body-color only under longer inspection. The images capture the beauty quite realistically. Comes with all WildFish perks.
