Gem rough was sourced and cut in Sri Lanka, the land of natural Sapphires. This gemstone is a 9.5x7.6mm oval and weighs 2.595 cts. This stone was sold to me as UNheated. The pink is dazzling!
I have a co-op partnership with the Sri Lankan vendor and I hand-picked this stone on my last visit. So every sale of their gems helps TWO small businesses! This could be kept as part of a gem collection, or mounted into any piece of jewelry you desire.
