Spessartite Garnet from Nigeria

Spessartite Garnet from Nigeria

Sometimes, you have the privilege to see exceptional gemstones. 
Two years ago, a miner coming from Nigeria visited our office and simply said: "a have a piece of rough to show you". What he pulled out from a simple bag and put on the table was quite a sight. A crystal of Spessartite Garnet, well over a hundred and ten carats, nearly loupe clean and displaying beautifully etched crystalline faces.

After a long examination and negotiation, we acquired the piece and entrusted it into the hands of our master cutter who skillfully faceted a unique forty-five carat cushion cut stone out of the rough.

We are pretty happy with the result and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!
