Gem rough was sourced and cut in Sri Lanka, the land of natural Sapphires. This gemstone is 5.3mm round and weighs .62 cts. The stone has NOT been heated - fully natural! Color has a violet tone - so it may look more Purple with certain clothing.
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.
