2.01 ct. Purple Star Sapphire

Color:  Dark Purple Clarity:  Transparent
Origin:  Sri Lanka Cut:  Round Cabochon

There are few gem materials capable of such intriguing beauty as star corundum in its finest grades. And while it is true that blue star sapphire and star ruby do get the most attention, we love to find those in the somewhat more unusual 'fancy' sapphire category. Here we have an extremely rich, dazzling, purple gem - a true 'grape jelly' color that immediately catches the attention.  The stone has a very fine asterism - the star floats nicely across the entire surface of the gem and requires only a bit of direct lighting to produce.  With some strong backlighting you can see that the stone itself has a few crystalline inclusions, but nothing distracting and all just a fine confirmation of its natural origin.  Fine stone at an attractive price.
