Notes: This is a spectacular brilliant cut spessartite round. Gem has color to match and the stone shows excellent color. This gemstone will fit in a calibrated 9mm setting. What a look this will be! This spessartite took over 4 hours to facet and polish and came from a 14.9ct piece of very high quality spessartite rough. This cut is an adaptation of a Bob Keller design and is probably the best round brilliant designs for spessartite. As you can see, precision faceting does make a difference when it comes to sparkle and brilliance. I cut this gem with 42-degree pavilion break facets and 39-degree pavilion main facets for best glitter and presentation. It really shows the color! For durability and strength, the girdle is faceted and well proportioned. Since spessartite normally occurs in nature as very included, this is why it is considered a Type III gemstone. At present, very little spessartite is being mined and the material coming out of the ground is often mis-identified. For a garnet to be true spessartite or spessartine, it must have a high refractive index and demonstrate a pure red-orange flash. Some intensely colored, lower refractive index hessonite is being passed off as spessartite, so please be sure of what you are looking at if you are in the market for a fine spessartite. Please contact us for more information on this spessartite or if you would like to have John custom cut one for you.
