Sri Lankan Pyrope Garnet
Hard to catch rough Pyrope Garnet from the gem-island odf Ceylon/Sri Lanka. I got the rough from a collector who travelled for decades around the world.

Rescued Topaz
From the weak and very shallow jungle cut Topaz (first pic, middle in the back) came out a vivid outperforming oval gem.

Perfectly clean, slightest colour zoning and endlessly brilliance.

Tanga Rhodolite
After a long time I faceted a new very big Rhodolite. This time it was an alluvial marble-shaped piece from Tanga, Tanzania with a purplish red colour. To achieve a good result I decided for the nine-sided nearly round trillion with a high top crown. The clarity is very high just some of the tanga-typical Rutile needles & platelets that add here and there a nice colour flash to this impressive gem.
The whole gem has a intense mystical glowing from the deep all over its crown, my camera couldn't show that.

This one was a hard fight. The rough was a big piece with 2.5 gram and only one half had a better clarity. The result still has many internals, but hey this is a Demantoid with over one carat! WIsh I would have more roughs even with this inclusions. The "Lighthouse of Porporela" with extra steep angles gave an extra portion of colour and dispersive flashes.
