Comment: Reborn in a precision-cut by Conny F.; from 3.15 carat down to 2.88. A gemological miracle, nothing less: ice-blue cobalt-spinel (meaning that the only color-agent is cobalt, nothing else to add the common mix of purple, grey, blue, pink etc. as in any other spinel). Swiss Gubelin reporting just that, plus 'no heat'. No other has been found. Blazing fire from a world-class precision cut and the most gorgeous crystal. Now in final perfection. Beauty plus extreme rarity - never a cheap combination. If it were not repetitive I would place another bet: you can't find a similar one. Conny's latest re-cut released more blue, perfected the symmetry, sharpened each facet to maximize brilliancy, but lost us only 27 points. No visible inclusions to the eye, but fantastic inner life under the lens (below the 'cathedral' and the 'veil'; the 'spaceship' and others under more images). A crown piece for any gem collection or once-in-a-lifetime jewel. Just as mesmerizing as the endless row of images suggest (I could not stop).
