This beautiful Montana sapphire is a gorgeous bright aqua blue color–reminiscent of the color of a fine gem aquamarine. The gem has outstanding natural clarity, with just a few tiny needles of natural rutile, just barely visible through 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 0.99 carats and measures 6.3 x 5.3 x 3.9 mm.
