An absolutely gorgeous unheated, untreated ruby from the famed gem mines of Mozambique weighing 2.02ct. Gorgeous shade of pinkish red, the ruby hue which is normally associated with the most vivid lustre, absolutely beautiful! The stone is, astonishingly, virtually eye clean table up and almost but not quite loupe clean as well - overall clarity is almost unprecedented in this excellence for the genre - unheated ruby from this origin will inevitably have multiple inclusions but this one is exceptionally clean indeed. There is s cluster of tiny inclusions on the rear pavilion facets and near the culet, but the operative word is *tiny*. There are just a few tiny repeat tiny feather inclusions the size of a pinprick, that’s all. Lustre and brilliance are exceptional and lustre is simply optimum despite the good colour saturation in the stone. We have used a sophisticated macro lens for these pics which will always tend to exaggerate any inclusions.
It goes without saying that the stone is extremely vibrant with excellent life and brilliancy, transparent, and comes complete with a recent certificate from the world respected Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences confirming no heat, the origin and colour vivid pink red.
Whether mounted or loose, this ruby is absolutely CERTAIN to appreciate in value as time goes by and offers exceptional investment potential. Shipping $60 EMS or Fedex
