This sapphire makes up for it small size with its unusual brilliance. Its high brilliance offsets the natural inclusions in this stone. This gemstone exhibits a bit of a color change common in sapphires from Montana. In most light it is bluish-green, while it is more of a lighter blue in sunlight and our studio lights. This gemstone is perfect for someone looking for an inexpensive Montana sapphire with lots of brilliance in the half-carat range.
