This "modified trilliant" brilliant is an important gem. It is the largest type of this quality from the stash that I was shown at Munich, and it is perfect for a display, investment or jewelry. Bright and nearly eye-clean (the camera picks up more than the eye does), and we can't emphasize enough the wonderful, almost neon-like brightness and color. Choice stone for the connoisseur. From the cherry-picked collection assembled during several years of excavation by Dr. Federico Pezzotta, discoverer of Pezzottaite and the man who handled the most of these demantoids as well, we are proud and privileged to offer this unique lot of gems cut from a modern day classic find; world-class demantoids from Madagascar.
