Rubyvale, Central Queensland
This is a very fine Australian parti-colour sapphire showing strong yellow and green hues. It is a very striking stone particularly given that it has been well cut into an Asscher-like square step cut design. This style of cut is ideal for parti-colour sapphires as it allows the various hues, in this case yellow and green, within the stone to be clearly seen and appreciated. This beautiful sapphire comes from the Central Queensland gemfields around Rubyvale where many fine world class sapphires have been mined over the last century.
