This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is beautiful bright orange color. It shows zoning of darker orange and lighter orange in the hand; a very lovely effect. There is a large feather in the middle of the gem. The macro image makes it appear much worse than it is–in the hand it looks much better. Because of this I have deeply discounted this gem, making a great value for such a large orange sapphire–a rarity from Montana.
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 2.15 carats and measures 6.7 x 5.1 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
