• Round Brilliant with Step Cut Crown Cut Spessartite Garnet

    Spessartite Garnet – Natural, Faceted, Orange, 1.13 ct

    This is a decent stone overall with a good orange color that I should probably call "Mandarin" Orange. It has an inclusion under one side of the crown that is difficult to spot without magnification, even under brighter light. The brilliance is good, but not quite as good as a standard round brilliant design would have been. It sparkles a bit more around the edges than in the middle, and the more I look at it, the more it grows on me. Color: Orange, Cut: Round Brilliant with Step Cut Crown, Weight: 1.13, Dimensions: 6.4 mm. (Information supplied by photo contributor.) © Daniel Stair, CustomGemstones.com
