This 3.53 carat unheated ruby has absolutely magnificent color! It is the perfect shade of pure, intense, almost electric red with no secondary colors. Top-quality rubies are so valuable they are generally cut to retain as much of the original crystal as possible, so it is not easy to find a well-proportioned stone that exhibits superior color and light return through the top of the gem, (also known as the "crown"). This exquisite gem measures 8.37 x 7.99 x 5.36 millimeters and is extremely bright and lively. This ruby is accompanied by Gemological Institute of America Report #1157625618 which states that it is unheated and has the color described in the trade as “Pigeon’s Blood," referring to its exemplary, highly prized and sought after hue. A spectacular, world class ruby!
