Sapphires is one of those gems that comes in virtually every color of the rainbow. With that said, this stone is nearly colorless (it has a slight golden overtone). It is a very gemmy, and unusually faceted bead of Sapphire, which is rather rare in my experience. The stone looks very attractive in the sunlight. I would certainly say this stone is a "collector" stone for the size, and unusual quality of the gem. A good Sapphire to add to a suite of gems, especially if you're into adding unusual stones to your collection.
