Rare Spessartite Garnet, Burma. Photo Bonhams.

From a rare locality for the mineral, the present stone is exemplary for the species not only for its very large size but also for the saturation of its color, a rich, deep reddish-orange, unhindered by any brown. The transparency is of the highest degree, unmasked by any haze as so many spessartites are. This is a "gem" ---a stone truly worthy of that designation, making it worthy of attention by the most serious collector. Weighing approximately 15.24 carats and measuring 16.5 x 12.0 x 8.0mm. Sold for US$ 31,250 (€23,357)
