This lovely heated Montana sapphire is a gorgeous rich teal blue color–one of my favorite hues in the Montana sapphires. This gem has a few small inclusions visible in the macro images, that are just barely visible in the hand without a 10x loupe but they are tucked off to the side. Apart from that it has very high clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. Sapphires from Montana are very uncommon over three carats!
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Aurora” brilliant square cushion design that I’ve created and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 3.26 carats and measures 7.7 x 6.0 mm. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
