Hi,
A very interesting I got in my hands recently for which I would appreciate your views.
I got a rough ruby ~25ct , transparent , but composed of several superposer layer or different Colors, from pinkish to violet, very amazing. The visual effect is very Estonishing. Question is the following: would it be more interesting(commercially) to split this ruby per the line of Colors or leave it intact to make it a unique piece?
Thanks

Pics would be great that one can see what you see ;)
Normally uniqueness is strongly seeked in the gemstone business. But it depends who will be adressed.
Could be that the commercial interest will be low but collectors can be very interested.
Depends normally how attractive the "uniqueness" is ;)
