Comment: Last but visibly not least for November 2019 comes this piece of art cut from the intense purple rhodolites that Tanzania has bestowed on us over the last years. Three carats worked into a double pyramid with utter perfection (8.47x8.47!) and a bold 3D-design. Obvious uniqueness aside, here are a few special effects worth pointing out: Firstly, the pyramid shape produces luster not only from the front but also from the side and back(!), not light reflecting on surface facets, of course, but from within, as two images have captured (one below). This may invite equally unique paths for jewelry design. Secondly, in an act of natural balance, its front-luster, the normal brilliancy, is relatively low (50%) for a precision-cut. Third, though the gem has a clear front- and an obvious back-side, it is pretty to behold from either side and one is easily tempted to turn it upside-down and imagine other possibilities. Leading to fourth and last, that the main impression is more that of an color-gem than a brilliancy-gem. Luckily the color is terrific. The rapidly changing depth of material produces sudden changes in tone, not in hue, from deep rose-purple to bright purplish pink or neon magenta. All-in-all not a gem for the conservative jewelry shopper but rather the starting point for an equally daring pendant design.
