This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a lovely light blue-green color, a classic Montana sapphire color. In some light there can be just a touch of silver/gray to the color. The sapphire is very clean with just a tiny amount of natural rutile silk and tiny inclusions visible in the macro image, but not visible in the hand without a 10x loupe. The silk creates just a tiny bit of softening to the brilliance, but also gives it a brightness in lower light. It is truly a beautiful natural sapphire!
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Helena” oval brilliant design that I’ve designed and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 2.25 carats and measures 8.2 x 6.7 x 5.3 mm. It would make an beautiful center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
