This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous rich blue, one of the finest shades of blue found in the Montana gems. The color was developed by heating the gem in Montana, but no other treatments were made to the gem. The treatment is permanent and stable and not only develops the color, but also improves the clarity. This sapphire has slight inclusions that are just barely visible to the naked eye. The inclusions have been factored into the price, making this a great value for the size and color.
I faceted this sapphire in my “Sparkling Snowflake” custom hexagon design; the resulting gemstone is a glittering beauty. It weighs 0.75 carats and measures 5.8 mm across the points, 5.2 mm across the flats, and is 3.4 mm deep. This gem would make a unique and stunning engagement ring.
