NGC COMMENTS
Although the AGL does not state origin because they just started around this time period, we remember when Ceylon sapphires were the most commonly traded sapphire gemstone at that time.Top color, one carat, 3.5 Ceylon sapphires hit their highest price in 1981 at approximately US$4000 per carat. In the last 30 years, the price action for this country of origin has been sideways to down. This stone is an intense gem at 70% blue with high brilliancy. It may be an interesting choice to start a small collection or if you need a relatively inexpensive gemstone for jewelry.Report signed personally by Cap.
