This gorgeous heated Montana sapphire is a beautiful teal color, one of my favorite hues of blue to be found in the Montana gems. The sapphire was heated in Montana to develop the color and improve the clarity; the treatment is permanent and stable. This gem has good clarity, with just a few tiny inclusions that are not visible without a loupe. I have factored the inclusions into the price, making it a great value for the size.
This sapphire is faceted in the classic diamond round brilliant design that has been specifically optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 2.15 carats and measures 7.7 x 4.9 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
