This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous teal green, a classic color for the Montana sapphires. The color was developed by heating the gem in Montana, but no other treatments were made to the gem. The treatment is permanent and stable and not only develops the color, but also improves the clarity. The sapphire has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. There is one tiny inclusion that is just barely visible with the naked eye, if you know where to look for it; at average viewing distance as it would be worn in a ring it is not visible.
This sapphire is faceted in a modified version of the classic diamond round brilliant design that is optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.76 carats and measures 7.1 x 4.8 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
