Comments:

This is one of the most unique stones to ever come out of our shop. It has a very interesting "Phantom" light phenomenon, where shadows of the facets intersect creating a perfect replica of the table inside the stone. The shadows move in correspondence to the light source on the stone, making the "phantom" move. This stone also has great multi-color flash from every direction. I have never seen a stone quite like this in my life, it has to be seen in person to really appreciate it.
