3.56 ct. Unheated Orange Sapphire

Color:  Medium Orange Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Sri Lanka Cut:  Oval Mixed
Treatments:  None Measurements:  9.6 x 6.7 mm

An impressive gem in an unusual and vibrant color.  Very fine orange Sapphires are not particularly common and, when encountered, tend to fall into two categories - either very light, pastel appearing gems, or heated stones that have a dark, near Spessartite color.  Firstly, we have to emphasize that the exceptional color of this gem is completely natural - it is an unheated, certed, Sri Lankan gem.  Moreover, the color is a such a fine orange - far above the saturation level of those 'pastel' gems.  In fact, the tone and saturation of the orange hue here reminds one of the, very rare, natural orange Diamonds that one occasionally sees.  Beyond the color (if you can get past it!), the gem is loupe clean and in excess of 3 1/2 carats.  Moreover, it has been freshly recut and is quite perfectly done - zero extinction and not so much as a touch of a window.  It is so refreshing to see a fancy Sapphire with such a finely done cut that even the bottom pavilion facets will not window out - an all too common occurrence.  A remarkable and unique gem.
