1.19 Oval Unheated "Classic Burma" Sapphire

Description
Carat sized unheated gem Burma sapphires are almost impossible to buy. This stone is a vivid color at 70% blue. The tone is a light 85 tone or 80-85, or technically an 82.5. The Burmese inclusions are deep within the stone and saturated color makes makes them difficult to see. If you look closely on the top of the gem you should see a natural. Naturals are incorporated into the clarity grades by AGL. The stone has good cutting and finish and an ultra-high 80-90% brilliancy. This gem would be beautiful mounted or a great gemstone for a collector.
