Comment: Here is one of those gems for which I drop whatever I do, and end up shooting too many images. But, see this marvel: 25 carat precision cut sphalerite, a gem with more dispersion, a.k.a. fire, than diamond, plus an equal refractive index, and the density of sapphire. All this topped of by an, in this size almost impossible, 'free of inclusion' plus an as-rich-as-imaginable wild color-play of yellow, orange, and red. Set in a protective pendant, which we'll do for you, this master-piece beats any gem alive in head-snatching, eye-popping and silly-mouth-opening. What may be such a gem's market value? With nothing comparable seen in this trader's life-time, and only one specimen in our stock, pretty well near priceless, right? Yet, a number it must have. Like our finest titanite, equal in sparkling, $750/ct seems fair call, and as a special WildFish-only-offer: this will include (if you wish) a setting into 18k-Gold, according to your design-wishes, a pendant it would be, (within technical and honorable limits) and with us hedging the risks of setting this delicate variety. Details are to be discussed. Meanwhile, enjoy under 'more images', its perfect cutting, the internally flawless crystal (an impossible rarity in sphalerite), the color zoning in bands and waves, Medium Dark 80 in the tips with Medium 60 in the center, and an endless procession of other stunning details.
