This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a lovely pale green color–almost appearing colorless at times. Like many Montana sapphires, this sapphire can shift color, appearing more green in daylight and fluorescent light and almost colorless under incandescent light. This particular sapphire is extremely clean and free of rutile silk, making it very bright and scintillating in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in a custom brilliant oval design that I created just for Montana sapphire. I’ve named the design “Testudo” as the facet pattern of the crown reminds me of a tortoise’s shell. The gem weighs 1.13 carats and measures 6.5 x 5.0 x 4.3 mm. It would make the perfect gem for a unique engagement ring!
