This Sapphire is truly unique, coming from the Queensland gemfields in Australia. This stone in its raw form was bi-colored blue and yellow. I cut it in a way that would blend the colors to appear this lovely shade of green, and it kept a pocket of blue in one of the corners.
I decided to cut this Sapphire in a design called "Star Trek Trillion", written by Jim Perkins, and it turned out to be a perfect choice! I love the softly curved sides and the way the light draws you to the center of the stone.
It's a natural, untreated gem with no inclusions and would make a unique, one of a kind engagement ring.
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 can be an array of colours and shades, including white, and red corundum is Ruby. Sapphires and Rubies have a hardness of 9, making it the hardest coloured stone after diamond, and is well suited for daily wear.
