All I can say is WOW what a stone! It is such a treat to get fine unheated Ceylonese Star Sapphire like this.
It is easy and common to find diffusion treated stones and for those that have budgetary restrictions it makes sense to buy those but THIS is the good stuff.
Star Sapphire from Ceylon/Sri Lanka has been harder and harder to find and again, this is a real treat of a stone. You may already know that stones like this can sell at auction for very large premiums, well this is your chance to get your hands on a beautiful star sapphire at a very good price.
