This is a truly lovely Montana Sapphire with a gorgeous teal blue-green color that practically glows in sunlight.
I cut this stone in a design called "Ruination," written by my good friend Arya Akhavan; a very popular design for its simple crown that highlights the beauty of its inclusions.
This Sapphire has been treated with only a standard heat treatment. The gemstone is included with a cloud resembling a nebula.
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.
