This lovely true oxblood 16 strand torsade with seed beads measures 18 1/2" and weighs 69.76 grams. The gemological appraisal from Harold Weinstein, a gemological lab here in Toronto, Ontario, accredited by the American Gem Society, and Canada's premiere gemologist, is an extra $100 bonus included with this lovely piece. The replacement value is listed as $950 on the appraisal which is good for evaluation and insurance purposes worldwide. This color of coral is the rarest and the holy grail of coral collectors. The gemological certified appraisal describes the color as "brown" as gemologists are not allowed to use trade names in appraisals, neither do they use the Italian color category designation names like "Oxblood".
Rare to extinct in the world of the undersea treasure store of coral ...gifts from the sea ....for serious coral collectors as this kind of coral is more expensive by weight than diamonds!!!!
