This beautiful heated Montana sapphire is lovely medium blue-green to teal color, one of my favorite hues in the Montana sapphires. The color zoning visible in the macro image is not visible in the hand–it all blends to form a uniform blue-green color. It is exceptionally clean, appearing almost flawless under a 10x loupe. The high clarity makes it a very bright and scintillating gem when held in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in a modified version of the classic diamond round brilliant design that is optimized for sapphire and cut to “hearts and arrows” precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 3.58 carats and measures 8.9 x 6.1 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
