This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous rich teal blue. 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. This sapphire has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. There may be tiny inclusions that are visible with only a 10x loupe.
This sapphire was faceted in a classic emerald cut, optimized for sapphire. The result is a sparkling gem weighing 2.66 carats and measuring 8.0 mmx 6.6 mm x 5.1 mm. This would make a unique stone for a one-of-a-kind engagement ring!
