ABOUT THE ITEM
Sapphires are considered one of the “Big 3” precious gems and often command some of the highest prices per carat in fine qualities. Over 95% of sapphires are heated to improve their color. Natural, unheated sapphires are more rare, and more valuable, than heated sapphires of the same quality. Sapphire is a 9 out of 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, second only to diamond. In addition to their beauty, sapphire's resistance to scratching is another reason why it's such a popular gem.
This fancy colored natural, untreated sapphire is an attractive light peach color, graded "yellowish orange" by GIA. It almost has the prized Padparadscha coloring from different angles. It measures 11.03 x 7.88 x 6.11mm and weighs 4.57 carats. GIA has determined it has not been heated, which is extremely rare in natural sapphires!
