3.09ct Australian Green Sapphire, Emerald cut
This is a large, very clean Australian green/blue sapphire. Generally emerald cut sapphires showing more than one colour are banded and have distinct colour patches however this sapphire is different. It's a broody dark green with flashes of bright green in its centre and flashes of blue towards each end. A unique piece that could look amazing in either a traditional design, perhaps a trilogy design or a modern double gem ring. With a high quality piece like this there are a myriad of ideas to explore. Click on Videos just above to see two videos of this lovely gemstone.
What does parti sapphire mean? The descriptive name parti is used for gems, generally sapphires that have one or more colours within the gem. Its taken from the word partition. This particular sapphire may not actually be classed as a parti sapphire as the different colours are not arranged in partitions. This sapphire is actually pleochroic as it shows different colours depending on the angle it is viewed. If you look down into the sapphire from above is it a deep rich forest green, however if you look from the side of the gemstone, down its length it is a lovely royal blue. Due to the orientation the cutter has chosen most of the time the gem looks green with flashes of blue especially at each end of the sapphire where light is bounced along the length of the crystal. It makes for a beautiful piece that is ever changing in different light.
