GR 65 This is an Australian blue sapphire we at oftheearthgems faceted from a piece of gem rough we got from a miner on the central QLD gem fields. I normally prefer to cut round brilliants because as the name suggests the stone becomes brilliant because of the cut if the material is clean enough. The latest flavor of the month for stones have been hexagons but because they are a huge waste of rough to cut and  once cut you can not put it back together again like gold I've always considered it a terrible waste of rare material. This time though I had a sapphire crystal to cut and for those of you in the know a sapphire crystal has 6 sides and so in this particular case not much rough stone was lost. There are a couple of vails in the stone which can be seen on certain angles and while they are considered an inclusion they don't detract from the beauty or value of the stone. In fact in today's modern world with so many artificial stones about it is a good indication that the stone is honest and natural! It is a beautiful stone and some lucky person will get to enjoy it for the rest of their lives.
