1.72ct Australian Parti Sapphire - Oval Cut
This sapphire is dark, but it has wonderful blues and greens that flash as the gemstone moves, especially in the sun. If you're looking for something deep and moody, this could be perfect. It has some very interesting inclusions, three little crystals that were caught within the sapphire crystal as it grew. Due to the dark nature of the gem the inclusions are very difficult to see. Under high magnification they are delightful, like little comets leaving trails across a night sky. Inclusions like this are rare in sapphire and help to prove that it is completely untreated.
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.
