This lovely heated Montana sapphire is a beautiful blue-green. The color was developed by heating the gem in Montana, but no other treatments were made to the gem. The treatment is permanent and stable and not only develops the color, but also improves the clarity. This sapphire has slight inclusions that are just barely visible to the naked eye. There is a slight haze to the gem from undissolved rutile silk, but it gives the gem a soft glow that is quite pleasing and enhances the color in low light. The inclusions and haze have been factored into the price, making this a great value for the size and color.
This sapphire is faceted in our custom “Triptych” trillion design; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. It weighs 1.15 carats and measures 6.3 mm x 4.1 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a one-of-a-kind engagement ring or pendant.
