This beautiful Montana sapphire is a lovely pale green color although it can appear almost colorless under incandescent light. The gem has very good natural clarity, with just a few tiny lines of boehmite, only 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 5.2 x 3.9 mm.
