This listing is for the depicted loose gemstone that I personally precision faceted on my custom-made lapidary equipment
• 1.52 carats • 6.4mm in length, 6.4mm in width, and 4.7mm in depth • Cut in my own triangular design • Unheated/untreated • Naturally occurring zircon
Detailed Gem Description:
A natural and untreated zircon with a reddish Purple hue, a light - very light tone and slightly grayish saturation. This gem is eye clean! This is an open tone gem, it will glow and sparkly in any lighting!
See the last four photos for reference on how I graded these. To maintain originality, I personally made the reference graphics with gems of my own design but it is based on GIA's color description system.
Photos were taken in daylight exclusively. Videos were taken outdoors under a blue sky with the sun overhead, additional videos were taken indoors in passive lighting, under my overhead led lights, and by a window. Please review all the videos thoroughly.
Gemstone Rough Country of Origin: Malawi Cutter: Sennin **I'm sure some of you are thinking, isn't this a lab-grown gem? No, natural zircon and cubic zirconia are not the same thing. Zircon is a naturally occurring gemstone (Some of the oldest dated gems in the world are zircons!) Cubic Zirconia is a lab-grown diamond simulant.**
• Microscopy Report: This gem is loupe clean, only under darkfield illumination was I able to spot a few silky wisps. See the reference photo (4x, darkfield).
