This genuine fancy Montana Sapphire has a nice yellow color with a drop of orange in the center. There are brief moments when it almost looks like there is a little bit of green that comes in around the edges, but I can't ever get it to do it on purpose in a particular lighting, and it doesn't happen often. It reminds me of the elusive green flash in the Caribbean sunset.
This Sapphire has very nice clarity overall, with one feather in the crown being the only inclusion. There is one spot on the girdle that didn't quite cut out of the natural shape of the stone, so it is a little rough in that one place. It will be perfectly covered with a prong in most settings and won't even be visible after it is set.
Stone/Origin: Montana Sapphire
Weight: .49 Carat
Cut: Pear w/Step Bottom
It was hand mined by my family in Rock Creek, MT, heat treated by my father in Helena, MT, and faceted by family friends in Bangkok, Thailand in a clean and ethical facility.

I've noticed that everyone's computer monitors display colors differently. This may alter the appearance of the Sapphire's color from what it truly is. I do try to list everything as accurate as I can, and to the best of my ability in any given moment. If you have any questions about a stone's color or clarity, please let me know.
