NGC COMMENTS
One carat unheated Burma sapphires are more difficult to obtain than larger sapphires. The 1.22 blue sapphire is a desirable, electric color at 65% blue. The tone is a perfect 75 tone, which means the stone never blacks-out. This is the best tone for mounting these gems. The gem is pretty clean at L2-MI1 clarity grade. The cutting and finish are typical for a stone cut in Mogok. The depth is slightly deep at 84% with a 60-70% brilliancy. This gem would be beautiful mounted or a great gemstone for a collector on a budget.
