This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is remarkable for its unusual combination of colors–the gem is both violet and pink. As it’s held in the hand, the gem flashes both violet-blue and pink. The gem has a moderate amount of inclusions, but I have factored them into the price, making this a great value for the size and color.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom oval brilliant design I created just for Montana sapphire. The design is called “Helena” in honor of the capital of Montana, located near the sapphire mines on the Missouri River in Montana. The gem weighs 1.24 carats and measures 6.5 x 5.4 x 4.0 mm. It would make a superb center stone for an engagement ring.
