This beautiful Montana sapphire is a gorgeous light blue-green color, a classic Montana sapphire color. The gem has good natural clarity, with just a light haze of natural rutile silk that softens the brilliance a slight bit and a few tiny inclusions 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 0.83 carats and measures 5.9 x 5.0 x 3.6 mm.
