This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is gorgeous light sky blue color–a classic Montana sapphire color. 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. This gem has excellent clarity, giving it wonderful brilliance in the hand. While the macro image shows a tiny inclusion, its not visible in the hand without a 10x loupe–its an eye clean gemstone.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Aurora” brilliant square cushion design that I’ve created and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.98 carats and measures 6.4 x 4.9 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
