Bicolor Orange Sapphire Stone

A fascinating example which showcases the magic of a skilled and creative cutter, there is more to this natural, 1.23 carat sapphire than initially meets the eye.

The secret behind this single cushion cut stone is that only a small pocket of the original crystal contained the vivid orange color that you see; the remainder of the crystal was pure, colorless sapphire.

 To make the most of such a desirable color, our cutter took great care with the planning of how this unusual gem would be faceted.  With optimally calculated depth and angle measurements, a colorless section of the crystal was shaped just perfectly to magnify the brilliant orange color, creating the largest orange sapphire possible before sacrificing any color saturation.
