This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a unique combination of two colors, orange and purple. The gem shows flashes of the two colors, creating a “particolored” effect. The gem is 100 percent natural and untreated in any way. The sapphire has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. It has a tiny bit of glow from rutile silk. There may be tiny inclusions that are visible with a 10x loupe that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Helena” brilliant oval design that I’ve created and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 0.86 carats and measures 6.0 mm x 5.1 mm x 3.8 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
