This emerald cut is a beautiful gemstone. It has a body that is a little over half pink with the remainder blue. Both pastel colors have a great medium light tone value. It appears to be eye clean and of great crystal except for some light feathers at the junction of the colors. This feathering was cause by laser testing and has a minor effect on the beauty of the gemstone. It weighs 6.41 carats.
The rough for this emerald cut came from Afghanistan. The only reason I had an opportunity to get the piece, was the sensitivity of bicolors to breaking, even when the rough is carefully cut. It is always a relief when stone with different color zones are successfully completed.
