Gem rough was sourced and cut in Sri Lanka, the land of natural Sapphires. This gemstone is a 7.3x5.7mm oval and weighs 1.23 cts. This stone has been heated. The fuscia color is eye-popping!
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.
