I love this stones unusual color. A strip of blue mixes with the yellow to create a blue-green-yellow gradient effect. It's size, at over 2 carats, would be perfect for a custom-made necklace or special engagement ring highlighted with diamonds.
I cut this gemstone in my favorite oval design, "Omni Oval," written by Robert Strickland.
This Sapphire is included, as seen in the photos, but they do not detract from the stone at a regular viewing distance, such as seen in the in-hand photo.
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.
