Red Songea Round Sapphire 4.85mm 0.62 carats

$55.00

Sharp unheated sapphire that we brought back from the Songea region of Tanzania.

The pictures might be a bit deceiving as in real room light you see a nice color shift from flashes of red to red to purple


This gemstone (or gemstone that is part of this piece of gemstone jewelry) has NOT been enhanced by traditional heat treatment or any other known means. The only way to tell if a colored stone has been treated is for the stone to be analyzed by a lab. Generally only gemstone laboratories have the equipment necessary to make a qualified judgment with any certainty.

Untreated gemstones are rare and should be verified by a lab independent of the seller. A good rule of thumb is to always assume a gemstone has been enhanced, unless valid certification from a reputable laboratory is available. No one that sells jewelry or gems should be doing appraisals, certifications, or analysis. It should always be an independent third party with no vested interest in the sale.
