Kerman Demantoid
From Kerman Demantoids at least two reaches sizes above 1 cts. what really challenging with these small crystals. For this one I preferred the "Tudor's Kaleidoskop" that is always great also for gems with intense internal life. The colour is due to the size and the origin a bit darker but still an explicite demantoid-green.

Malawi Rhodolite

Erongo Demantoid
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.
1.22 cts.
, 6.7 x 5.6 x 4.8 mm

Erongo Demantoid, 1.22 cts.  

Ceylon Sapphire
Is it worth to recut a boring 3.08 cts. Ceylon Sapphire to a
vibrant 0.93 cts. gem, to accept a loss of around 70%?
I say YES, definitely, while I wish I had the original rough to facet and avoid so a lot of loss.
The first pic shows the weak and silky appearance of the flat gem  (around 8.5 x 5,3 mm). In the second pic the silk is still existent but sue to a lot of sparkles and a more saturated colour there is much higher brilliance.
VSI clarity with several tiny internals and only a decent amount of silk.
0.93 cts.
, 5.6 x 4.9 mm

Ceylon Sapphire, 0.93 cts.

Ampanihy Pastel Pyrope
It was not easy to find, to catch (and to pay!) this outstanding gem. A rough marble with a diameter of around 17 mm weighing 10.4 gram and was catching my eyes. It had the perfect shape for my "nearly round trillion" and here is the result: high saturated magenta colour, vvs clarity and an astinishing size for a Pyrope Garnet.

Arusha Tanzanite
When you close your eyes and think about Tanzanites you surely see pruplish blue or violettish blue gems?
When you see this gem you surely don´t think about Tanzanites. Anyway the tanzanion Zoisite is the ultimate chameleon in the mineral world. Here you can see some "savannah"-aspects mean yellowish and violett to golden hues as well as greyish and greenish colours. It is an unheated gems with its full trichroitic potencial and every little turn shows other hues. It´s just a chameleon!

Val Val Smoky Quartz
After years it was time for y new NEO. It´s often hard to find a rough with a good shape for special designs like this one. The rough is from Switzerland, Surselva or more specifically from Val Val. Except on some fingerprint internals at 6 o'clock it´s completely clean. If you have very sharp eyes you might notice it.
