This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is a deep rich blue-green color–one of my favorite hues found in the Montana sapphires. 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. There is a feather at one of the gem, but its much less visible in the hand than the macro photo implies–the view in the photo is closer to the view through a loupe. In the hand its just barely visible. I have factored the feather into the price, making this a great value for the size.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Helena” oval brilliant design that has been optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 2.75 carats and measures 8.8 x 7.3 x 5.6 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring!
