8ct Unheated Blue Green Sapphire

8.29ct natural blue green sapphire with no thermal treatment.

The color of this sapphire is hard to capture as it varies depending on natural or indoor lighting. It is predominantly a blue sapphire but the green is always hovering.

Sometimes you discern more blue or as a deeper blue, and at other times the blue is as pale as the green. However the depth of light, this sapphire shows a blending of blue and green with much natural inclusions at full display in some parts.

I call this a pale-to-dense sapphire because it appears pastel color but carries with it a dense internal display, the latter giving the impression of a darker hue.

It is for this universe-in-a-gem effect that I love sapphires like this.

Not all see-through faceted gems have personality beyond the notion or preference of color. But personality is hardly limited to color in the world of gemmology or geology! The presence of inclusions – not one or two streaks but rather a loose ‘galaxy’ arrangement – makes for me an intriguing stone.

I imagine there is great potential to set a stone like this but you’d need an experienced and artistic jeweller.
