Description

This lovely heated Ceylon sapphire is a pretty violet-pink color, giving an overall light purple impression.  Sri Lanka (formerly called Ceylon) is famous for its gemstones, especially sapphires.  The government has maintained regulation over mining to prevent large-scale environmentally destructive mining from occurring, encouraging small-scale artisanal mining.  The same applies to their gem cutting industry, with many small artisanal gem cutters working in the country, often having done so for generations within a family.

This sapphire is eye clean and has been heated to improve the clarity. There are just a few tiny inclusions that are not visible without a 10x loupe. This sapphire was faceted in Sri Lanka in a classic diamond round brilliant and is well cut.  The gem weighs 1.06 carats and measures 6.1 x 4.1 mm.  It would make the perfect gem for a unique engagement ring!
