This gorgeous heated Montana sapphire is a lovely combination of blue and yellow. The gem shows flashes of the two colors, creating a “particolored” effect. The color was developed by heating the gem in Montana, but no other treatments were made to the gem. The treatment is permanent and stable and not only develops the color, but also improves the clarity. This sapphire has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. There may be tiny inclusions that are visible with only a 10x loupe.
This gem is faceted in our custom “Helena” brilliant oval design, created and optimized for sapphires; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.06 carats and measures 6.4 mm x 5.4 mm x 4.1 mm.
