This beautiful unheated sapphire is a gorgeous aqua blue, bringing to mind the tropical waters of the Caribbean Sea. The gem is 100 percent natural and untreated in any way. The sapphire has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. There may be tiny inclusions that are visible with a 10x loupe that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
I faceted this sapphire in my “Sparkling Snowflake” custom hexagon design; the resulting gemstone is a glittering beauty. It weighs 0.99 carats and measures 6.3 (across the points) x 5.7 (across the flats) x 3.9 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a beautiful and unique engagement ring!
