This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a beautiful light blue green color, similar to the color of a gem aquamarine. The gem is exceptionally clean for an unheated sapphire, with just a dusting of fine natural rutile silk. The high clarity makes it a remarkably brilliant gem–in the hand this is stunning gem, with great bright color and amazing scintillation.
This sapphire is faceted in my modified version of the diamond round brilliant cut, optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” level of precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.14 carats and measures 6.0 x 4.0 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
