    Product Description

    At 4.85 carats, this oval Masasi Blue Garnet™ is an important collectible gemstone. Until a few short years ago, the world had never seen any blue garnets; the gemstone reference books said they did not exist! Then magic happened when this new alluvial source was discovered in southern Tanzania. We were asked to participate in the acquisition of some of this rough. After a short discussion, we decided to invest heavily and buy as much as we could! And effectively, we cornered a good portion of this market for a time, while the rough was being found. Like natural alexandrite, this garnet has a very similar color change and is untreated. But our experts believe it is even rarer; therefore very desirable for any collection. Now, the particular deposit this stone was mined from is no longer producing and market supplies of these phenomenal gems are extremely limited. The supply is sporadic to virtually none. This bodes well for the smart collector now and in the future.

    Masasi Blue Garnet Color Change 4.85ct 9.87x8.36mm Oval With S.G.L. Report By Craig Lynch is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very clean but dark. This stone is a nice size and the disproportionate cutting is not apparent. The stone appears dark and opaque except when holding in hand with sunlight overhead where the edges begin to show flashes of red sparkles. Only when one holds the stone up to a window and looks through the stone does one see the beautiful teal color shown in the photograph. Only holding the stone to a light and looking through does one see the color change. There are no visible inclusions. I see that the hue of the stone is rare and demands the price but without these viewing means, the stone is just black.
