NGC COMMENTS
Carat sized unheated gem Burma sapphires are almost impossible to buy. This stone is a vivid color at 70% blue. The tone is a light 85 tone or 80-85, or technically an 82.5. The Burmese inclusions are deep within the stone and saturated color makes makes them difficult to see. The stone has good cutting and finish and an ultra-high 80-90% brilliancy. This gem would be beautiful mounted or a great gemstone for a collector.
