This lovely unheated Montana sapphire is a beautiful aqua blue-green color, a classic Montana sapphire color. The gem has a minor inclusion with some oxide staining, but the effect is much less prominent than the photo would imply. It’s not visible without a loupe, making this an eye clean gemstone, and quite brilliant in person. I have factored the inclusion into the pricing, making this gem a great value.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Testudo” oval brilliant design that I’ve designed and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.31 carats and measures 7.1 x 5.4 x 4.3 mm. This gem would make a beautiful center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
