Who can tell me why Kashmir sapphires are so beautiful and valuable?  Anyone?  Why are they worth more than a very similar sapphire from Ceylon?  Silk!  Yes, that's right- there are inclusions inside the stone that increase their value.  It's not really silk, of course- we just call it that.  Perhaps the fact that they look like little strands of silk is why. 

This rhodolite garnet from Madagascar also has tiny inclusions inside which serve to "soften" the brilliance.  In effect they break up light in a way that is perceived by your eye as being "soft" or smooth- especially compared to the sharp brilliance of a diamond, or the colorless topaz from Burma that we have listed in the auctions currently.



This beautiful rhodolite garnet is a superb example of how inclusions can add beauty and value.  As a gemstone collector you should be able to explain this phenomenon to anyone who asks- or better, just show them!  If you put this stone side-by-side with another stone with sharp brilliance the difference is obvious.



This gemstone hails from Madagascar, it weighs 2.47cts and measures 8.15 x 6.14 x 4.61mm deep.  It is unequivocally guaranteed to thrill you, and to be totally untreated.  This stone was mined, cut, and polished only.  No heat, no chemicals, no filled fissures!

Bidding starts at 9BTC and the bid increment is 1BTC.  Good luck!

Turbor is in the lead at 9BTC!  This stone is custom-cut and also very symmetrical.

I still need to pay you for the other stone, so I don't think I'll bid this time, although I may contact you for a similar stone in the future Smiley
