This gorgeous heated Montana sapphire is a beautiful rich teal blue color, one of the finest shades of blue to be found in the Montana gems. The sapphire was heated in Montana to develop the color and improve the clarity; the treatment is permanent and stable. This gem has very good clarity, with just a few small inclusions, most only visible with a 10x loupe. The inclusions have been factored into the price, making this gem a good value for the size and color.
This sapphire is faceted in the classic diamond round brilliant design that has been specifically optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.62 carats and measures 7.0 x 4.5 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
