Gems and Jewelry, 6.7 x 5.3 mm; 1.40 carats
Sri Lanka
Sapphires is one of those gems that comes in virtually every color of the rainbow. With that said, the most recognizable color of Sapphires by far is blue. I've seen literally every shade of blue known to man exhibited in Sapphires, and they are still some of the most popular, durable, colorful and highly sought after gems on the planet. This stone has a beautiful light blue color, and actually is a bit of a bicolor stone as it shows colorless areas as well. The stone is virtually eye clean and has a Step Cushion cut, which is not common for Sapphires.
