This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a lovely blue-green, a classic Montana sapphire color and one of my favorites. The color was developed by heating the gem in Montana, but no other treatments were made to the gem. The treatment is permanent and stable and not only develops the color, but also improves the clarity. The sapphire has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. There may be tiny inclusions that are visible with a 10x loupe that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
This sapphire is faceted in a custom brilliant pear design, optimized for sapphire and cut to high precisions. It weighs 2.52 carats and measures 10.2 x 7.6 x 5.0 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring or pendant.
