    Demantoid garnets were first unearthed in mid-19th century in the Ural mountains of Russia. Though they often come in a yellowish-green hue, the best and rarest colour is a vivid grass green that could rival emeralds, as seen in this lot. Further cut into a shape that enhances its dispersive power, this lot offers more than a stone of rarity, but one of pedigree and a century's allure.
