7.06L x 6.9W x 5.35H. First discovered in the 1800s by gold miners, Montana sapphires are all together rare, beautiful, and curious. About 3 to 5% of sapphires from Montana come out of the mines and river banks as gem quality, most are unheated to achieve their beautiful colors, and curious is that those which are heated, are often unaffected by the treatment, as if the crystal structures are simply saying No to the hand of Man attempting to alter them. Our Montana sapphires come from the banks of the Missouri River where high-clarity fancy sapphires in a range of pale to bright colors and unique possibilities, have been mined by hand and simple tools since the late 19th century.
