What you may assume to be a very typical 'black' star Sapphire holds a wonderful surprise; the star is in fact, the much rarer 12-ray variety. Standard 6-ray stars are many, many times more common and we only once in a while see one of these - and rarely such a fine, larger stone with such a distinct asterism. These can be the result of growth abnormalities and are not always so dazzling as this example. Outstanding polish and with a sharp and mobile star, you simply could not wish for a finer example of this gemological rarity.
