A good days cutting.

Today I  started on a custom order for a client and finished this fine 3 ct  color shift Tanga  garnet from Tanzania Africa,it has a strong  color shift from light wine red /pink in natural light to pink/purple in fluorescent light to pink/red in incandescent light.The blue flashes are numerous and seen in all light.I managed to capture these blue flashes easily in many parts of the stone with the camera,they are not subtle at all which is very unusual combined with the fairly strong color shift I hesitate to use "color change" because the term is abused so often.
All in all a good days work!
