3.85 millimeter

0.24 carat

Here is a wonderful orange-red princess cut Red Emerald (beryl) gemstone.  The stone is very small, but beautiful.

Kennecott's initial exploration of the Ruby-Violet Claims in 1994 yielded only 293 carats.  Reportedly, the largest stone faceted from their efforts was only seventeen points!  As of 1997, the average size for a Red Emerald gem was only 0.05 carat...and over 90% of ALL cut stones weighed 0.08 carat or less, so this example is three times larger than the average size.  The typical shape was to form crystals into rounds, and princess cuts are fancy shapes in this variety.
