This gorgeous unheated Montana sapphire is a rich blue green color reminiscent of the eggs of the American Robin or like a tropical sea. While the macro image shows some inclusions and some fine rutile silk, neither of these are visible without a 10x loupe, although the silk does give the gem a slightly softened “glow.” It is an eye clean gemstone and quite bright and flashy in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Bella” brilliant square cushion design that I’ve created and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 3.80 carats and measures 7.9 x 6.4 mm–quite large for a Montana sapphire. It would make an amazing center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
