1.34ct Australian Parti Sapphire Yellow/Teal - Emerald cut
Here is an interesting Australian Parti Sapphire. This piece came to us from a family collection hand mined and cut in the 1970's. During its many years hidden away it sustained a few little chips, probably from being stored rubbing against other sapphires. We entrusted restoration of this pretty piece to Master gem cutter Scott Langford who not only repolished the gem but who also corrected some of the angles bringing this 40 year old faceted gem right up to modern standards. It's a light pastel yellow with teal blue areas throughout and as expected some green depending on the light and angle. Very bright, very pretty.
Sapphires are the second hardest natural gemstone after diamond. Hardness is very important if the piece is to be worn daily, as in the case with an engagement ring. Sapphires are one of the few gemstones suitable for this purpose and Australian sapphires are some of the worlds best. If this sapphire is not exactly what you are after or if you have other requests please contact us as we have a vast collection and a wonderful group of miners who toil day in day our looking for more of these enchanting and enduring crystals.
