• Detailed Gem Description: 
A natural and untreated corundum with a dominant blue hue, a very light tone, and grayish saturation.  Some inclusions are visible with magnification,  see the microscopy report for details. This is a brilliant, open-toned gem, it glows and sparkles in any lighting! 

Photos and videos were taken outdoors under a partly cloudy sky with the sun overhead, additional videos were taken indoors in passive lighting, under my overhead led lights, and by a window.  Please review all the videos carefully. 

Gemstone Rough Country of Origin: Malawi
Cutter: Sennin

• Microscopy Report:
This sapphire features 3 types of inclusions. There a few very small partially healed fractures that surface on the crown or are located underneath the crown of the gem, these are depicted in photo 4. There is also a fluid-filled fracture that surfaces on the crown near the girdle, this is depicted in photo 3. The fluid-filled fracture is very slightly noticeable without magnification.  This gem also has layers of rutile silk throughout, depicted in photos 1 & 2. I used the Photo Atlas of Inclusions volumes 1 & 3 by EJ Gübelin and JI Koivula for visual reference.

I took two 128 photo focus stacks of the rutile silk. Once is cropped with slightly different settings and looks a little sharper. The other is a 28-photo focus stack of the fluid-filled fracture. It turns out that focus stacking itself is an art :P.
