Calling all jewellers: Sapphire alert!
This stunning stone is a Songea Sapphire from Tanzania. Songea sapphires are always very special, one-of-a-kind stones because they are often startlingly pleochroic (meaning they look to be different colours depending on the angle you’re viewing them at) and some are even color change. Their hues are often subtle and charming, but they are always examples of the true magic crystals that the earth produces.
This particular stone is full of purples and cranberries and peaches, and it is stunningly clean for the material having only slight inclusions. And for all you jewellers with clients who want the certificates for their stones, this one comes with a GIA report.
