1.09ct Pink Montana Sapphire, Unheated


Pink Sapphire from Montana, Unheated and Chromium-bearing.

Precision cut in Colorado by Jon Schwing @geologicspectrum

6.0 x 4.1 mm

A sublime Unheated Pink Sapphire, extremely rare for any locale but especially Montana. This delightful crystal boasts several unique features, most notably the chromium bearing Trigon, which is eye visible in-hand at some angles! The hot pink triangle is surrounded by hexagonal lines of Rutile silk, called “growth lines”, these show the natural crystal structure’s orientation as it grew. Very fun in hand, this Montana will appear silky at certain angles, and clear at others. My favorite Pink Sapphire that we’ve cut to date 🙂
