This lovely unheated sapphire is a beautiful light pink-lavender color, a fairly rare color for Montana. Under incandescent light the color slightly intensifies and shifts more towards light pink. The gem has good clarity, with just a few small inclusions. They are not easy to see without a loupe and only have a slight effect on the brilliance; 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 0.81 carats and measures 5.6 x 3.5 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a beautiful engagement ring!
