Description

This lovely heated Ceylon sapphire is a gorgeous light violet-blue color.  Sri Lanka (formerly called Ceylon) is famous for its gemstones, especially sapphires.  The government has maintained regulation over mining to prevent large-scale environmentally destructive mining from occurring, encouraging small-scale artisanal mining.  The same applies to their gem cutting industry, with many small artisanal gem cutters working in the country, often having done so for generations within a family.

This sapphire is extremely clean and has been heated to improve the clarity. The sapphire was faceted in Sri Lanka in a classic step-cut round and is well cut.  The gem weighs 1.01 carats and measures 6.1 x 3.4 mm.  It would make the perfect gem for a unique engagement ring!
