This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous sky blue, bringing to mind the Big Skies of Montana. 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 are a few tiny inclusions that are just barely visible without a 10x loupe, but they don’t detract at all and a very difficult to see unless you are looking for them.
This sapphire is faceted in a classic emerald cut, optimized for sapphire and cut to high precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.93 carats and measures 7.2 x 5.9 x 4.4 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
