Here is a stunning, yellowish, very rounded, approximately 0.45 carat Diamond from Bill Larson's Burma collection, the likes of which are rarely seen from here. It shows natural color and water rounded form. Although it's a fine competition-level thumbnail gem crystal, yellow ones from Myanmar are very rare, as are any. Note the superb gemminess and the bright adamantine luster, as well! These are almost impossible to obtain, as nearly all are cut immediately for the obvious gemstone value and easier market in selling cut stones.
