2.96 ct Heliodor, Pakistan
Custom USA cutting by Daniel O’Neil
10.1 x 6.5 x 6.0 mm
This rich Golden Beryl (a.k.a. Heliodor or Yellow Emerald) hails from Pakistan, and boasts some of the deepest saturation we have ever seen in this material. Yellow so intense it borders on orange! Eye clean at twelve inches, there are some small wispy inclusions like Cirrus clouds visible under the loupe, but they do not detract in any way. Color on this piece MAY be radiation-induced (sorry we cannot be sure) but is stable.
