Large Cat's Eye Sillimanite and Diamond Ring
ABOUT THIS RING
A sizable, seldom seen, and thoroughly enchanting gem: a round 13.26 carat cabochon sillimanite is imbued by Mother Nature with a shimmering, mesmerizing pale khaki color and the gemological phenomenon known as chatoyancy (the cat's eye effect, and this one is about as bright and distinct as they come). In effect, the captivating stone--something between a translucent chrysoberyl cat's-eye and a moonstone--glistens, gleams and glows from within a double halo of tiny bright white round brilliant-cut diamonds, with the outer ring punctuated by fans of small tapered baguette diamonds. Total diamond weight, .82 carat. Crafted in platinum, currently ring size 6 1/4.
