These Fancy Montana Sapphires have a beautiful orange color. One of the Sapphires has a bit of white around it's edges, making it a little lighter than the other. Overall, they match quite well in color and shape.
The Sapphires have very good clarity with the exception of some silk patterns within. The silk patterns are more visible when the Sapphires are back lit, or if there is bright light coming from the sides. It gives them the look of glowing, swirling galaxies within them when the silk is lit up. You can see it in some of the photographs. Some of the edges of the stones are not perfectly sharp and have been rounded by time. The rounding is fairly faint and easily covered with prongs to further protect their integrity.
These Sapphires weigh .80 carat total, measure 4x4mm and are princess cut. They are sold as a pair. They were hand mined by my family in Rock Creek, MT, heat treated by my Father in Helena, MT, and faceted by family friends in Bangkok, Thailand in a clean and ethical facility.
I've noticed that everyone's computer monitor displays colors differently. This may alter the appearance of the Sapphire's color from what it truly is. If you have any questions about a stone's color or clarity, please let me know.
