Burma Star Sapphire - pink - oval - 13.7x8.1x2.6mm - 2.98carats
A very fine star sapphire from Burma. Bubble gum pink in color, with a translucent body with nice sharp star.. I loved the vibrancy of this stone when I first found it, its crisp color and white star, just seemed so fresh and alive
FYI-That star sapphire is that variety of sapphire in which when the stone is cut (cabbed) and rounded off horizontal with the dome of the crystal, the light is condensed across the three lines of the crystalline interference. These crossed lines produce a star which moves as a source of light, or as it is moved from the source of light.
