This beautiful Montana sapphire is a rare combination of aqua and yellow. The gem shows flashes of the two colors, creating a “particolored” effect. The color was developed by heating the gem in Montana, but no other treatments were used. The treatment is permanent and stable and not only develops the color, but also improves the clarity. This sapphire has very small inclusions that are quite difficult to see with the naked eye from a normal viewing distance.
This sapphire is faceted in our “Sparkling Snowflake” hexagon design and cut to high precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.71 carats and measures 7.6 x 7.0 x 4.6 mm.
