Material: Sapphire
Type: Natural untreated
From: Australia
Design: Montana Burst (Designed by Jeff Graham)
Cut By: Dan Starr
Basic Shape: Octagon
Size: 6.6 mm wide x 4.5 mm deep
Clarity:  I - several growth lines are visible and a feather under one
corner of the table - not visible to the naked eye
Weight: 1.73 carats
Price: Sold
Treatments:  None
Note: This is a natural untreated sapphire from Australia.  The
photos don't come close to showing the beauty of this stone!  It is
blue-green, almost teal in color.  Natural unheated sapphires are
getting increasingly more expensive.  Some sellers are asking $600
to $800 per carat for this material!  The cut and polish on this gem
are excellent.
I attempt to accurately represent and describe cut stones and rough
as to appearance, size, origin and fully disclose any known
treatments in its description. Because you view the images on a
different monitor with different settings, color is particularly fickle
to represent, but I do my best.

Material: Sapphire
Type: Natural untreated
From: Australia
Design: Whiskey (Designed by Dan Starr)
Cut By: Dan Starr
Basic Shape: 12 sided round
Size: 6.7 mm wide x 4.7 mm deep
Clarity:  I - several growth lines are visible and many tiny black
specks in the blue areas - not visible to the naked eye
Weight: 1.70 carats

Note: This is a natural untreated sapphire from Australia.  It is a
bi-color stone with two distinct blue zones and one green zone.  
The overall effect is a green stone with blue flashes.  There isn't
much mixing of the colors.  You can see the zones quite well in the
4 additional photos, especially in the picture of the pavilion.  Natural
unheated sapphires are getting increasingly more expensive.  Some
sellers are asking $600 to $800 per carat for this material!
