Here is a very fine Sri Lankan purple sapphire. The colour is a very lovely purple hue and the sapphire nice and bright. It has been very well cut and polished and is an ideal size for all jewellery applications. In the pics the sapphire appears to have alot of speckles. These are natural, very tiny, inclusions inside the sapphire. To the eye the sapphire appears very clean but it wasn’t until I photographed the sapphire that I noticed these inclusions. The camera has a knack of picking out every tiny little thing, however, in real life the gem is a superb fancy coloured, very bright and lively sapphire, one that you will be very very happy with.
