This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a rich peacock blue color–a deep blue with a tint of green. The color is reminiscent of the feathers of the peacock, hence the name. It has a light amount of rutile silk visible in the image, but its not visible in the hand without a 10x loupe. In the hand this is stunning gem, with rich color and beautiful brilliance. It represents some of the finest blue color to be found in the Montana sapphires.
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 1.40 carats and measures 6.6 x 4.3 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
