This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a lovely pale lavender color. The gem is 100 percent natural and untreated in any way. This sapphire has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. There may be tiny inclusions that are visible only with a 10x loupe. There is a very slight haze to the gem from undissolved rutile silk, but it gives the gem a soft glow that is quite pleasing and enhances the color in low light. The inclusions and haze have been factored into the price, making this a great value for the size and color.
This sapphire is faceted in a classic emerald cut; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 0.47 carats and measures 5.5 x 3.5 x 2.4 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
