This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous light sky blue color–a classic Montana sapphire color. The sapphire is extremely clean with just a few tiny orange rutile crystals visible in the macro image, but not visible in the hand without a 10x loupe. The high clarity makes this a gorgeous and scintillating gemstone.
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 2.60 carats and measures 8.7 x 6.6 x 5.6 mm. This is quite large and very clean for a natural unheated Montana sapphire–it would make an beautiful center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
