Pink Spinel 4.08 carats
Not only is this one of the best natural spinel from Mahenge, Tanzania that you will ever see, but also the best cut ever. This was cut by Phil Youngman, one of the best in America. Some say that he “angelized” gemstone cutting in America. Through my friend David I had the opportunity to meet Phil in Quartzite, AR in the late 90’s and David gave me a rough Zircon (see more about our Zircons ) and Phillip just started heating and cutting right in front of me. In a matter of few minutes, I don’t know how long, as I was transfixed on his art, he gave me the most beautiful stone I had seen.
