This incredible heated Montana sapphire is gorgeous royal blue color–one of the finest hues of blue to be found in the Montana gems and in fact, sapphires from any locale. While the macro image shows a tiny crystal inclusion, its just barely visible without a loupe, and only in certain lighting. Apart from that, the gem has remarkable clarity–it’s scintillating in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in a modified version of the classic diamond round brilliant design that is optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 2.35 carats and measures 7.9 x 5.1 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
