Comment: This Rhodolite requires closer study: Firstly, to the eye, the crystal seems clean and normal, but at closest inspection and under full magnification it reveals a silky grainy structure (as shown in the close-up below). While utterly invisible to the eye, and very hard to see even under the lens, this silk dims the whole gem a shade darker in its overall impression (MD80). Secondly, the cutting seems almost perfect, a modern precision cut, yet a closer study shows that it is an 'almost perfect' hand-cut; a positive point in my book: the sign of remarkable fine handcraft with little or no technical help, cut about 30 years ago. This said, we here have a dark rose red Rhodolite with an overall flawless first impression. No window but a big face (with 8x6), no visible inclusions, no treatments, dark in character but never black, and with an extra fine hand cutting. A characterful alternative to a deep red ruby with strong but singular red sparks in good light
