Comment: Deserving a 'pigeon blood' grade in all but origin. Crossing the high hurdle of 2 carat unheated ruby but doesn't cost a fortune, yet. On the side-images you can see several natural dents in the outer surface. These are not considered inclusions, however, there is a tiny growth swirl inside the stone (which only a pro will find with lens). Without that puny little inclusions this 2+ ruby would qualify as 'free of inclusions'. Obviously this is a simple native cut gem, not precision, but also not bad and it has kept the magic 2 carat intact. No pink, no purple, no brown. no window. This is not a flashy gem for quick impressions but a dense tranquil character that needs time and attention to blossom. We offer additional GIA certificates free of charge on this gem if requested. Note the different characters with different lights and backgrounds.
