This gorgeous heated Montana sapphire is a beautiful rich blue color, one of the finest shades 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 exceptional clarity, with no inclusions visible with a 10x loupe. The high clarity makes it a scintillating gemstone in the hand, with rich flashes of blue.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Testudo” oval brilliant design that I’ve designed and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 2.55 carats and measures 9.0 x 6.6 x 5.5 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
