This is a new species of gem red beryl, found only in 2002 and brought to market in limited quantity. No more material has been found since around 2005 and there is little wholesale reserves. So it's now difficult to find gem-quality crystals of this rare cesium-rich member of the beryl group, and it's arguably rarer to source truly fine gems of this species in today's market. We are excited to offer three important example. Our favorite gem of the suite: Simply a "killer" gem in all regards -- highly recommended for a fabulous piece of jewelry (and what a conversation piece) or to reside as an important addition to a connoisseur collection. This oval brilliant has gorgeous purple pink color and shows top brightness and clarity for the species. That slight hint of purple tone (visible in the side shot) separates the top quality pieces of rough, in this species, and is considered very rare. Just a spectacular and rare collector's gem!
