This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a lovely light yellow color, a fairly uncommon color for the Montana gems. The gem has outstanding clarity, with just one tiny inclusion only visible with a 10x loupe. The high clarity makes this gem remarkably bright and scintillating in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom oval brilliant design I created just for Montana sapphire. The design is called “Helena” in honor of the capital of Montana. The gem weighs 1.67 carats and measures 7.7 x 6.5 x 4.6 mm. It would make a superb center stone for an engagement ring.
