This lovely unheated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous forest green color–an uncommon color in the Montana gems. There is a very light amount of natural rutile silk in this sapphire which just barely softens the brilliance of the gem, but it is still a very bright and scintillating gem in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in a custom brilliant oval design that I created just for Montana sapphire. I’ve named the design “Testudo” as the facet pattern of the crown reminds me of a tortoise’s shell. The gem weighs 1.75 carats and measures 7.6 x 5.7 x 4.9 mm. It would make the perfect gem for a unique engagement ring!
