This beautiful Montana sapphire is a gorgeous sky blue color, like the “Big Skies” of Montana. The gem has excellent natural clarity, with just a light haze of natural rutile silk and one tiny inclusion only visible with a 10x loupe. In the hand it is quite bright and lively.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom oval brilliant design I created just for Montana sapphire. The design is called “Helena” in honor of the capital of Montana, located near the sapphire mines on the Missouri River in Montana. The gem weighs 0.80 carats and measures 6.0 x 5.0 x 3.6 mm.
