NGC COMMENTS
One of a handful of gemstones with an Excellent Total Quality Integration Rating (TQIR). Top 3.5 color because it's 70% primary color and tone of 80. Which means the stone is a strong vivid blue. The 7.71 is clean at LI2-MI1 clarity grade. That means you probably cannot see any inclusions with your eyes. The cutting and finish are typical for a stone cut in Mogok. The stone has an ideal depth and a high 80% brilliancy. Naturally, the gem is not heated or clarity enhanced. All these factors go into the Excellent or 1.5 TQIR grade. A serious collector piece.
