This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous pale violet. The color was developed by heating the gem in Montana, but no other treatments were made to the gem. The treatment is permanent and stable and not only develops the color, but also improves the clarity. This sapphire has inclusions that are visible in the hand. It looks better in the hand than the photo would imply. The inclusions have been factored into the price, making this a great value for the size and color.
This sapphire is faceted in a modified version of the classic diamond round brilliant design that is optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 0.88 carats and measures 5.8 mm x 3.8 mm.
