A rare stone indeed as this star sapphire has been cabbed on both sides and each side shows a star. Translucent body with nice 6 point star. Warm delightful sky blue color with it’s star gracefully dacing upon its faces as the stone and the light bounce upon it.
This star sapphire was mined and cabbed in Burma
FYI-Star sapphires usually have six ray stars, but twelve ray stars are also known. Rarely, when sapphires are cut in a cabochon style, you can see a cat’s eye effect. This effect displays a thin band of light down the center of the stone and is known as chatoyancy
