This stunning Sapphire comes from the Central Queensland Sapphire Fields of Australia.
I cut this stone in a flattering cut called "Omni-Oval" designed by Robert Strickland that showcases its beautiful color and loupe clean interior.
The striking blue-green color of this Sapphire is completely natural, neither being heated nor treated in any way.
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.
