Gems and Jewelry, 14.5 x 8.0 mm; 4.07 carats
Bahia, Brazil

Though Andalusite is well known throughout the gem world, there are very few world localities for fine quality gems. This stone is a virtually eye clean trichroic red, orange and green "Cushion" cut gem. The multicolor pleochroism of Andalusite is distinctive and extremely attractive. It is difficult to find stones in this size with this clarity.
