I went to college in Colorado in the late sixties from New Jersey. Besides being introduced to many delicacies of western fare, I ran into Mexican food for the first time. When I asked my “friends” which salsa I should put on my food they all said the green one. Well I wasn’t born yesterday, though I was a lot closer to the date than I am now, and tasted the green salsa before applying it. WOW was it hot, I realize now that it wasn’t really that hot, but that was the way of the world then for me.
This emerald cut is green salsa hot and it won’t cool down for a long long time. It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal. Its long ratio minimizes the impact of the semi-closed ends that still flash. It weighs 1.77 carats.
