Comment: Not competing with hot Mahenge spinel, nor with red Burma for $20k, but nevertheless a very classic and elegant Ceylon spinel in full size, with a rich red-purple grape hue, sparkling from a silky crystal and a very delicate needle structure. Giant face, with 'only' four carats measuring over 11x9 but no window thanks to fine local cutting. These traditional hand-cuts, at least some, look almost like precision quality, lacking, under the lens, nothing but the exact meeting points between the facets but delivering all other immediately visible features demanded from a modern CAD cut. Lively rich red sparks indoors when the silky crystal remains clear, but bright pink-purple glitter outdoors when the needles splinters sun-rays into a fuzzy glitter (as in close-up hand-shot). Affordable full-sized spinel with a charming mild character. Unheated, with lab report, free shipping etc.
