 This listing is for the depicted loose gemstone that I personally precision faceted on my custom-made lapidary equipment

ON HOLD


• 1.31 carats
• 7.1mm in length, 5.7mm in width, and 4.1mm in depth
• Faceted in my own Galaxy design
• Unheated/untreated
• Naturally occurring corundum (sapphire)
• Inclusions visible

Detailed Gem Description:

A natural and untreated corundum (sapphire) with a dominant violetish Purple hue, a light tone, and grayish to slightly grayish saturation. Inclusions typical of sapphire from this locality can be observed with magnification, see the microscopy report for details. This is an open-tone sapphire, it will glow and sparkle in any lighting!

See the last graphic for reference on how I graded these. To maintain originality, I made the reference graphics with gems of my own design but it is based on GIA's color description system.

Photos were taken in daylight, in a lightbox and under the microscope. The blue sky is reflected in the gem in the daylight photos. The first four videos were taken in daylight with the sun overhead and a blue sky. The last few scenes in the fourth video are inside in passive lighting and under my overhead LED lights. The outdoor scenes in the fifth video were taken on an overcast day.   Please review all the videos thoroughly.

Gemstone Rough Country of Origin: Tanzania
Cutter: Sennin

• Microscopy Report:
This gem has typical rutile silk sprinkled throughout the gem, it is sparse though so it doesn't overpower the appearance of the gem. Under brighter lights you might feel like the gem looks the slightest bit opalescent, this is due to the rutile inclusions. The reference photos were taken in 4x magnification under direct illumination and darkfield illumination.
