This lovely unheated sapphire comes from Umba, Tanzania. The color is a beautiful purple-tinted pink that is consistent across different lighting although the hue can deepen a bit under indoor lighting to a slightly darker pink. The gem has some light to moderate rutile silk that make it a little bit “sleepy” and can show a silvery flash as its tilted, but its still a bright and lively gem. I’ve priced the gem accordingly and its a good value. The gem is faceted in a classic oval design; it weighs 1.04 carats and measures 7.0 x 5.0 x 3.8 mm.
