This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous rich blue color with just a faint hint of green modifier. This color represents some of the best and finest of the blues to be mined in Montana. The gem has very good clarity, with just a few tiny inclusions, only one of which is barely visible without a 10x loupe. The high clarity makes this gem very bright and scintillating in the hand.
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 0.95 carats and measures 6.2 x 5.2 x 3.8 mm.
