This particular blue sapphire is a really stunning 2.52 heat only at the dark end of electric blue Sri Lanka sapphire, the stone was hand selected by me specifically because of the vibrant vivid colour. The stone is a great bluff stone because on the hand it faces up like a 3.5+ carat sapphire, it is 8.50 x 7.18 x 4.91.
First three photos are in a light box which amps up the colour of the stone, it is only that saturated in strong shop lighting but I include these photos so it is comparable to photos from vendors that take professional gemstone pics.
Photo 4 was taken outside in the shade in natural lighting, Photo 5 also taken outside in natural lighting.
The stone is a dark electric blue in dark lighting situations to a darker cornflower blue in strong lighting situations. It would be classified as a "cornflower" blue stone (it's twin colourwise just came back from Lotus Lab and was designated "cornflower blue"), however, I would not personally describe the stone as cornflower more into peacock blue in low lighting situations but not royal and never too dark in any lighting. This particular stone is pretty close to a trade ideal vivid electric blue up the darker end of what people classify as "cornflower." But to avoid confusion think of it as darker than cornflower and not as dark as royal blue. It is a lovely shade of blue IRL.
It has a white clear band or colour zoning as is typical of unheated sapphires that you can see upside down, that you can see on a tilt angle about 5% of the time. Mostly face up you don't it at all, but sometimes it appears like a small clear window in the stone. Set I think it will disappear. As a result what would normally be a $3500+ priced stone because of the colour and origin (Sri Lanka origin) was now $2500USD, now reduced to $2200.00
