This lovely unheated sapphire is a beautiful bright pink color, a fairly rare color for Montana. Under incandescent light the color slightly intensifies to a richer hue of pink. The gem has good clarity with just a few tiny inclusions that are just barely visible without a 10x loupe; in the hand it is very bright and scintillating gemstone.
This sapphire is faceted in the classic diamond round brilliant design, optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision. It weighs 0.71 carats and measures 5.2 x 3.4 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a beautiful engagement ring!
