Selecting the appropriate rough stone sample is incredibly tough, as in the majority of cases, you will end up with some material that will provide no attractive color after cutting. To pick the optimal rough material, extensive experience and expertise in gemstones are required. Indeed, to select the right one, the colors in the rough must be positioned correctly and exhibit excellent clarity. Needless to say, the less inclusions, the better!
This auction option was really unusual, and we didn't want to miss out on any opportunity to get high-quality material. Therefore, to ensure that we were selecting the appropriate rough material, we requested the General Manager of one of our cutting companies to accompany us to the auction. His outstanding abilities and years of experience enabled him to select the appropriate rough stones within seconds. He was able to inform us rather than the rough could be cut, heated, or even used for any other project.
