Description

This lovely Ceylon sapphire is a beautiful medium cornflower blue color–one of the most desirable hues for a sapphire.  Sri Lanka (formerly called Ceylon) is famous for its gemstones, especially sapphires.  The government has maintained regulation over mining to prevent large-scale environmentally destructive mining from occurring, encouraging small-scale artisanal mining.  This sapphire was acquired in a parcel of mine-run alluvial sapphires from Sri Lanka, which I had heated and cut there.

The sapphire was faceted in a classic rectangle/oval cushion design in Sri Lanka.  While not precision cut, the cutting is very good.  The gem weighs 2.04 carats and measures 8.0 x 5.9 x 4.5 mm.  It would make the perfect gem for a unique engagement ring!
