I offer for sale this sapphire, Sri Lanka origin, no indication of treatment, purple blue colour with a colour shift effect, certified in Antwerp by the IGI under the number 279765516. Very saturated colour

A video is available at the following link:

More than 95% of sapphires on the market are heated (thermal treatment) to improve their colour. An unheated sapphire is therefore much rarer and its value is increased.

As a GIA graduated gemmologist, I choose the gemstones myself. I take the photos without filter, under different natural light conditions. The colour and luminosity are always more beautiful in real life than in the photos, and inclusions that can't be seen by the naked eye are sometimes visible in photos.
