A very unusual combination of orange purple color on this glorious sapphire from the Songea region of Tanzania. It Really caught my eye as I’d never seen a color like it before. So odd that I actually sent it off to the AGTA gem lab for certification to ensure it was a sapphire. I love this little 53 pointer, it’s unheated and if you turn the stone you see pink sometime, orange sometimes, or purple sometimes, or a combination. This sapphire in Unheated, and AGTA certified. near eye clean in clarity. One Pretty Baby.
