This beautiful Montana sapphire is a gorgeous medium-light lavender color. Completely natural and untreated, this is the color of the gem just as it formed deep in the earth, millions of years ago. This sapphire has good clarity, with just one or two tiny inclusions only visible with a 10x loupe. The inclusions are not visible with the naked eye; the gem is eye-clean. Unheated natural sapphires like this are very rare; each year we are only able to cut about 5-7% of our rough without having it heated.
This gem is faceted in our custom “Helena” brilliant oval design, created and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.06 carats and measures 6.5 mm x 5.5 mm x 4.1 mm.
