eye clean, from Tanzania. We first saw the rough this gem was cut from late last year and were impressed by the intense color down the C axis of the crystal which can only be captured when orienting the gem with the C axis perpendicular to the table. As a result the recovery when cutting the gem is quite low, however, the color of the finished gems is well worth the loss. This cut is an original pattern by John.
