This genuine fancy Montana Sapphire has a silvery light blue color that is a bit mottled. There is a vivid internal landscape of inclusions in this gem. I get the impression of a queen bee surrounded by her doting hive when I gaze into it's depths. Because of the nature of the inclusions in this gem, I suggest prong setting instead of bezel. It will make a unique center stone for any jewelry project.
This Sapphire weighs .79 carat, measures 5.2 mm and has a round brilliant cut. It was 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. The photos are taken in different lighting for you to get an idea of how the Sapphire's color may shift depending on lighting.
