This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous medium blue with a hint of green, similar to the color of a fine gem aquamarine. The gem has outstanding clarity, with just one tiny inclusion just barely visible without a loupe. The high clarity makes this gem remarkably 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 1.13 carats and measures 6.6 x 5.6 x 4.0 mm. It would make a superb center stone for an engagement ring.
