Oval cut sapphire, 1.20 carats, origin Sri Lanka
Resplendent, crystalline sapphire all over the gem, straight growth areas visible, a sign of a natural stone.
From Antiquity to the Middle Ages, sapphire was most often understood as lapis lazuli.
Around 1800, it was discovered by Jacques Louis de Bournon (1751-1825), a 19th century French mineralogist and crystallographer, that sapphire and ruby were varieties of corundum.
Very pretty sapphire with bluish growth zones that can be mounted in a very beautiful jewel.
