This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is an gorgeous rich green color that I call spruce green as it reminds me of the color of the needles of the spruce tree. The green has just a hint of blue to it, that varies in intensity with the lighting. The sapphire has outstanding clarity, with only a few tiny inclusions that are extremely difficult to find, even with a 10x loupe. The high clarity makes this gem very bright and scintillating in the hand.
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 0.91 carats and measures 5.7 x 3.7 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
