This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is gorgeous bright robin’s egg blue color–one of my favorite hues found in the Montana gems. 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 outstanding clarity, with only one tiny inclusion, just barely visible with a 10x loupe. The high clarity makes this gem extremely bright and scintillating in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in a modified version of the classic diamond round brilliant design that is optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.20 carats and measures 6.3 x 4.1 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
