This lovely unheated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous pale yellow. The gem is 100 percent natural and untreated in any way. The sapphire has excellent clarity. There may be tiny inclusions that are visible with a 10x loupe that can’t be seen with the naked eye. The sapphire has undissolved rutile silk that softens the brilliance, giving it a hazy glow.
This sapphire is faceted in a custom brilliant rectangle cushion design I call “Eureka,” optimized for sapphire and cut to high precision. The gem weighs 1.02 carats and measures 6.0 x 5.0 x 4.0 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
