Two of the reasons for the popularity of Diamond as a gemstone are the extremely high Refractive Index (R.I.) and a very high Dispersion. Andradite, one of the many varieties of Garnet, also has extremely high values for these properties. As a result the round brilliant cut Andradite seen here possesses excellent "fire" which is particularly apparent when the stone is being moved about. The golden-brown body color is light enough that the strong dispersion shows very well. Fashioned from Mexican material the stone is quite clean and well cut and measures 8.9 mm in diameter and weighs 3.07 cts.

Important notice: Heritage usually auctions material at the rate of 100-110 lots per hour. On some occasions the Live Auctioneer bid software or the Internet may not be able to keep up with the pace of the auction. We recommend placing a realistic absentee bid now as insurance to avoid disappointment. Occasionally the auctioneer may eliminate or reject a Live Auctioneer Live bid, and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the Live Auctioneers live bidding (usually because we missed an audience bid), and may reject your bid even if it shows you as the winning bidder. By bidding via Live Auctioneers, you agree that Heritage may award the lot to another bidder at its sole discretion under the circumstances described above or any other reasonable circumstances. Since Live Auctioneer bids are not shown to us until we open the lot on the floor, we treat those bids just like floor bids. In most cases the floor responds before the Live Auctioneer bid is presented to us, due to Internet lag time, so for consistency we have made it a policy that floor bids are always considered first over tie Live Auctioneer bids. Also please note that all Heritage lots purchased through Live Auctioneers carry a 19.50% Buyer's Premium with a $14 minimum Buyer's Premium. Please make sure you read the Terms and Conditions before you bid. This lot is being auctioned in conjunction with a live floor auction by Heritage Auctions. All final auction and invoice information will be supplied by Heritage Auctions, and all other information should be considered preliminary.

All final auction and invoice information will be supplied by Heritage Auctions, and all other information should be considered preliminary.
