I cut this one the week before last. I didn't have time to photograph it before heating. The original color was kind of a golden brown. I actually debated with myself about leaving it unheated, but like Jason, the temptation of the oven is too much for me.

THe stone is 2.06 ct.
Tanzanite

I guess the oven temptation is like being at the casino! If there's even a tiny chance of winning its too much too much for me turn down! Guess I should give stone baking a miss!

Lovely stone Gene! as always!

organizations do .....My Favorite GemRecipes.....

Broiling Beryl
Roasting Rubies
Sizzling Sapphires
Toasting Tanzanite
