NGC COMMENTS
A rare, not treated Burma spinel back for liquidation from a collector. In the old days, these stones were described as "day glow" or "fluorescent". They are known today as "hot" pinks. Of course, they generally come with lighter tones of 60. This means they look good in all lights and never "black-out". The AGL document doesn't have a color scan but refers to the ColorScan Card 299. That card represents the transition point between ruby and pink sapphire. These are desirable colors in ruby or spinel. The clarity is MI1-MI2. The proportions and finish are both good. The depth is 66.4 and the gem has a 60% brilliancy. These "electric" pink spinels" don't show up very often anymore. A serious gemstone for a portfolio or to mount in an upscale jewelry piece.
