Comment: A wave of red sparks runs up and down this pear-shaped rhodolite, reliable in all but the blackest blackness. In the images it looks like a yellow line or dots, IRL those sparks are a row of magically deep-red glitter. Obviously, this is a deep-toned gem with dark areas under normal light conditions. From Medium-Dark 85 we don't expect a through-and-through red gem but the ever-beckoning wave of 'Here-I-Am' sparks catches room-wide attention. Typical garnet from Ceylon (not the brown-red type from Brazil), with purple as secondary hue, though far less than the mind-boggling east-African rhodolites with neon purple at the front and red as a 2nd hue; plus a very different price-tag. This big pear shape will make a serene pendant, visible with 14x9mm, elegantly understated in its low tone, never pushy. No treatments, no window, no inclusions. Lab report from Madrid, every purchase protects rainforest at WLT and helps our dear friends at the NhRP. Free global delivery and grading papers. Individual settings for a little extra.
