53.17ct natural unheated star sapphire.
The star sapphire is a bright ‘pastel blue’, on which its striking six rays extend all the way very prominently.
The blue while soft feels very bright from its large size, its color intensified by its very evenly distributed star.
The cabochon is also well contoured.
There is a small ‘dent’ that does not detract from the value of this gem at one side.
It can be polished off, but because this is a close-to-perfect collector gem specimen, the choice will be left to new hands.
This jumbo star sapphire has been in private collection since its 2006 GRS certificate; it has never been set.
All photos are taken in natural light, using only a pen light to display the star.
The gem measures 18.43 x 21.85 x 12.45mm.GRS Report 2006-050116T.
