Rare, Large and Fine Purple-Pink Sapphire
The gem gravels of Ceylon have long produced fancy colored sapphires in a variety of hues. Yet the supply of such stones available on the open market, particularly when they are in no way enhanced, is an ever diminishing one. The present stone falls into this rare category. Well-saturated with a vivid purple-pink color, this natural, unheated sapphire--weighing slightly under 30 carats, is one of those objects of desire that may only be seen once or twice in a lifetime.
Weighing approximately 28.98 carats and measuring 18 x 16.09 x 12.21 mm
