This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous bright lemon yellow color, an uncommon color for the Montana sapphires. The gem has a moderate amount of fine rutile silk that gives it a soft “glowing” appearance and a few tiny inclusions that are too small to see without a 10x loupe. While I could have this gem heated, I really like this effect and I wanted to offer it to those who share that love of unheated gems.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Topangle” trillion design; the resulting gem is bright and beautiful in the hand. It weighs 0.78 carats and measures 5.6 x 3.7 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring or pendant.
