Vietnam - Cushion - IGI certificate no. 279765518

Stone: Spinel
Weight: 1.00-1.99
Country: Vietnam
Cut: Cushion
Certification: IGI
Colour: Red

I am selling this superb natural red spinel, of Luc Yen origin. Certified in Anvers by IGI under number 279765516

Red spinels are rare stones. They are among the most sought after and their value is huge, similar to that of rubies.

Weight: 1.13 ct
Cushion cut
Measurements: 7.07 x 6.46 x 3.22 mm
Purity: VVS

My spinels come from deposits in the province of Luc Yen in the north of Vietnam. They are mined by family companies, families of peasants in their own rice field plots between rice cultivating seasons. The cut is then performed by the village lapidary.
This region of North Vietnam is world-renowned for the beauty of its spinels. The stones there are particularly pure. The beauty of the colours and the brilliance of the crystal explain the popularity of the spinel over the last number of years and the constant increase in its value on the collector's market.
Obviously my spinels do not undergo any treatment.

As a GIA qualified gemmologist, I choose my stones myself. I take the photos without filters, in different natural lighting conditions. The colour and luminosity are always more beautiful in real life than in the photos, and inclusions that can't be seen by the naked eye are sometimes visible in photos. Some of my stones can be seen on my Facebook page
