Comment: Better, purer, stronger, or richer purple is hard to imagine. It leaves no doubt why this variety has made its way to the very top of all garnets; not beating the green types in value but getting there. Even the still under-estimated purple as such has profited from rhodolite's extraordinary beauty. This 2.90 comes in Medium Dark 75, generally thought to be the darkest tone in other colors, blue or red, the point where maximum saturation borders on darkness but still holds the hue in all its glory, best seen in our handshots. Hence, like royal blue sapphires, this is not a bright sparkler, but a deep and hypnotic hue. As-good-as free of inclusions (meaning you might, or might not, find any inclusions under the lens but never with the unaided eye). DSEF report with 'purple' only, without a secondary hue. No window thanks to the dense color in the center but a full face up. Totally legit alternative to an untreated ruby or fine purple sapphire which in this size and color intensity would cost a small fortune.
