DESCRIPTION

Round and round she goes! This is a top-gem round Burma ruby that is totally unenhanced. It is from the old mine at Mogok. Never saw a two carat round one before I found this one in Asia.

The is a color that is difficult to capture. The stone is a pure medium-dark toned pure primary red (90%) with perhaps 10% of a secondary purple hue. This is the hue that the Burmese call pigeon's blood color which always has a bit of visible purple (blue) that when set in gold appears pure red. Clean, well made and very brilliant.

Dimensions: 6.7mm

Comments: A wonderful stone with just the slightest bulge below the girdle. A truly beautiful gem

The grading categories used here are based on the approach recommended in my book: Secrets Of The Gem Trade, The Connoisseur's Guide To Precious Gemstones.
