This beautiful unheated sapphire is a gorgeous teal blue, one of the finest shades of blue found in the Montana gems. The gem is 100 percent natural and untreated in any way. The sapphire has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. It has a tiny bit of rutile silk. 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 1.03 carats and measures 6.3 (across the points) x 5.8 (across the flats) x 4.1 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a beautiful and unique engagement ring!
