This lovely unheated Montana sapphire is a beautiful light green to yellow-green color. This particular sapphire has some minor natural inclusions visible in the macro image, but they are not visible in the hand without a 10x loupe; its an eye clean gemstone and very bright and flashy in the hand. I have factored these inclusions into the pricing for this gem, making it a great value for the size.
This sapphire is faceted in a custom brilliant oval design that I created just for Montana sapphire. I’ve named the design “Testudo” as the facet pattern of the crown reminds me of a tortoise’s shell. The gem weighs 1.01 carats and measures 6.4 x 4.9 x 4.1 mm. It would make the perfect gem for a unique engagement ring!
