This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous blue-green, a classic color for the Montana gems. 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 undissolved rutile silk that softens the brilliance, giving it a hazy glow. This sapphire has slight inclusions that are just barely visible to the naked eye. I have factored the inclusions into the price, making this a great value for the size and color.
This sapphire is faceted in a custom radiant rectangle design I call “Fourth of July.” The result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 2.70 carats and measures 8.0 x 6.8 x 5.0 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
