This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous peacock blue color–a rich green-tinted blue reminiscent of the feathers of the peacock. This color represents some of the best and finest of the blues to be mined in Montana. The gem has excellent clarity, with no inclusions besides a small stripe of natural microscopic hematite inclusions, basely visible without a loupe. The high clarity makes this gem very bright and scintillating in the hand.
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 1.09 carats and measures 6.5 x 5.5 x 4.0 mm.
