6.98 cts - Striking Round Brilliant Reddish Orange Hessonite With Video!
Quote:
Video taken in natural shaded sunlight. Pictures taken in natural shaded sunlight.



This stone is a dead ringer for Spessartite, but instead of $200.00 - $300.00 a carat, a Spessartite of this quality & size would cost you, this Hessonite is only $75.00 a carat.



Strong reddish orange saturation, & a medium tone, makes this stone stand out. Great cutting, makes this stone very lively. Eye clean, not sleepy like many Hessonites, because of their over abundance of sugar like inclusions. Nice face up size at 11.20 mm, almost a half inch in diameter.



A top Hessonite, for the collector who appreciates Garnets.
