One of few gems to ever get an ultra rare 3 color because it's 75% primary color under the old AGL grading standards. You will probably never see another sapphire as blue as this rock. The tone is 85, but the tone is 80-85, which means it's a light 85. The gem is clean at LI2-MI1 clarity grade. That means you probably cannot see any inclusions with your eyes. The cutting and finish not typical for a stone cut in Mogok. This stone was recut by a master. The stone is slightly deep at 85.3% but has an almost unheard of 90% brilliancy. This gem would be beautiful mounted or a great gemstone for a collector who wants the best.
