The rough for this stunning bi-color Sapphire came from Madagascar and feautres distinct blue and green colors in a bow-tie effect across its crown.
I cut this Sapphire in a hexagonal design called "Dryad's Verdure," written by Arya Akhavan.
This stone is untreated, however, it does have a surface reaching inclusion near its girdle which can be seen in the video and is reflected in its price.
Sapphire has been popular throughout history, and that trend doesn't seem to be changing. Sapphire is a mineral called corundum, and it doesn't only come in the well-known royal blue. Corundum comes in an array of colours and shades, including white. The popular Ruby also belongs to this family as a red corundum. Sapphires and Rubies have a hardness of 9, making it the hardest coloured stone, and is well suited for daily wear. Sapphire also happens to be the traditional birthstone for those born in September.
