This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous padparadscha color. The gem is 100 percent natural and untreated in any way. The sapphire has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. There may be tiny inclusions that are visible with a 10x loupe that are difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye at a normal viewing distance, and has a very slightly hazy quality due to rutile silk.
This sapphire is faceted in a modified version of the classic diamond round brilliant design that is optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 0.59 carats and measures 5.2 x 3.3 mm, the perfect size for an engagement ring.
