This Barion cushion cut has everything you would want in a dichroic blue green/yellow green gemstone. The blue green is in the middle of the cushion with the the yellow green in the ends. The medium tone value is just right for a bigger stone. And this gemstone is very flashy for a darker gemstone. It weighs 11.40 carats and is a significant stone in the collection.
I obtained the beautiful material for this gemstone in a private deal on a lot from Afghanistan. I trade some for African material, but saved enough to cut some beauties. Afghanistan material certainly can make bright open stones.
