Spessartite's are one of my favorite gems to look at. Most of what I've been cutting has been from the recent Loliondo find in Tanzania.

This piece is from Tucson 2007. Has a princess cut look to it, but I've revised the pavilion to suit me, and the shape of the rough allowed it.
4.08ct ~ 8.0 x 8.0 x 6.35mm

Shot at 18 inches; f32 and 4.0seconds
On a shiny black background.
No overhead lights.
Used two OttLites.

I think those Congo greens are fantastic! I love that green and that cut! Well done, Roger!

BTW, Roger -- You said the Tanzanian zircon "has not been heated yet." Does that mean you intend to heat it? If you have heated it, can we see a picture? :)

Well Barbara, I've just returned from Tucson a matter of hours ago, and truly have not given that Zircon another thought since I finished it. So, I may heat it, but I have no urgency to get to it at present. It may just sell in its current appearance. At least, I hope it does!

Gene: The colors on that sapphire are impressive. Both vivid. Be happy to take that one off your hands.
