This is a wonderful rhodolite garnet from the Umba River Valley in Tanzania. It is a substantial size at 2.40 carats and the emerald shape is well-cut for very good brilliance. The hue is very slightly orange-Red and this stone measures 9.04 x 5.78 x 4.62mm deep.
The clarity on this stone is VS, or very slightly included. Please understand that we grade accurately according to GIA standards. This means that compared with any VS stone you buy on eBay, ours will be much, much cleaner. When we tell you that a stone is VS it really is. Many eBay gemstone merchants use VVS or flawless for virtually every gemstone that they sell. Be very wary of such dealers! Gemstones that come from the earth tend to have some inclusions.
Our business is trust-based. If you can not trust us, you will not continue to do business with us. If we sell you one stone and you are not happy, we can not be happy either- we just lost a customer. In order for us to succeed, we need to make you a regular customer. We need for you to come back again and again and again. That is always our goal- when we select stones, when we describe and photograph them, and when we pack and ship them. We never forget that we are building a relationship.
This garnet is a 3 day or 72 hour auction. The starting bid is 5BTC and the bid increment is 1BTC. Shipping is NOT extra- it is included in your bid. We always ship stones registered air mail with tracking, and we are very prompt to ship.
Please let us serve you for your collectible gemstone or jewelry needs! If you are looking for a special stone that I have not listed, or that is not on my Bitmit auctions, just get in touch.
