1.26 Heated Ceylon Sapphire

Description
Although the AGL does not state origin on this 1985 document because they just started around this time period (mid-1980's), we remember when Ceylon sapphires were the most commonly traded sapphire gemstone at that time. Top color, one carat, 3.5 Ceylon sapphires hit their highest price in 1981 at approximately US$4000 per carat. In the last 30 years, the price action for this country of origin has been sideways to down. This stone is an intense gem at 70% blue with high brilliancy. It may be an interesting choice to start a small collection or if you need a relatively inexpensive gemstone for jewelry. Report signed personally by Cap. Many consider this a collector's item, too.
