This gorgeous little unheated Montana sapphire is a classic Montana color–a beautiful medium sky blue color. The sapphire has good clarity, and while the macro image shows spangle of tiny rutile crystals, they are only barely visible with a 10x loupe. Apart from that the high clarity makes this a very bright and scintillating gem in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Bella” brilliant square cushion design that I’ve created and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 0.43 carats and measures 4.0 x 2.9 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
