This blue and green Sapphire is from the island of Madagascar and warrants a lot of photos in different angles and lighting conditions. It's main bodycolor is a gorgeous green but there is a corner of blue that, when tilted, turns the color of the stone to a beautiful blue.
I cut this Sapphire in a mix design called "Squartuguese," written by Marco Voltolini, that includes a Portuguese pavillion and a Step-Cut crown.
This stone is slightly included with wisps of silk.
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.
