    Read more /> We could content ourselves with a simple technical description, but no. This sapphire is unique. If you want to see a ‘Finger Print’ in 3D, of which the perfect lines go from transparency to orange, take your magnifying glass and enter the material. It is the top model of ‘Finger Prints’. Once we’re finished looking at it, we notice veils and discreet needles of rutile. In this sapphire, the veils are geometric and also in 3D. Instant emotion!

    Natural violet sapphire of 29,68 ct. with no indication of thermal treatment following the indications of the GRS report. Brillant cushion cut quite flat that allows us to admire a very particular show of inclusions. The color is bright, even, intense and some spots of light bounce on the internal structure.

    21,11 x 16,95 x 7,97 mm. 

    Expert notes:
    Although the inclusions in the sapphire look like a meteorite shower, they are simply needles of rutile. What is impressive is their parallel placement. The light shines along their lines following the same direction. And yet, the stone is of great transparency and unfurls its color with panache.

    Cornflower blue Ceylon sapphire of 4,98 ct. with no indication of thermal treatment. Modified brilliant/step cushion with rounded edges. Ceylon origin mentioned in the GRS report. When looked from the table position while moving, lighter areas appear. It is in fact the light which is reflected on clouds of very fine rutile needles. These clouds lead to a great softness in the stone. It is velvety, precious and refined.

    Expert notes:
    The arrangement of rutile is splendid, stripes are perfectly designed. We notice in the stone rare small sticks aligned in a parallel way, which reflects that crystals associated themselves and repeated their pattern therefore creating an element of slices. This is rare in a sapphire this beautiful. The magnifying glass x10 is enough in itself to admire the natural non-modified traces in the gem.

    Intense purple-pink, round brillant, mixed cut sapphire of 7,26 ct. with a color softened by numerous little crystals in suspension, so typical of the Madagascar origin mentioned in the ALGT report. These crystals allow a reflection of the light in the entire stone, avoiding any light extinction phenomena. Depending on the position in which we look at it, the purple-pink prevails or lets sparkle an orangy-pink color. Very nice transparency and sparkle.

    Mixed deep cushion cut yellow sapphire of 6,49 ct. having the particularity to have little frog eggs like inclusions. Natural sapphire showing no signs of treatments and Sri Lanka (Ceylon) origin suggested by the ALGT Lab, which is confirmed by its very particular inclusions. Very soft yellow color letting the light bounce off the suspended crystals.

    Expert notes:
    The suspension of

    small natural zircons is already in place during the formation of the sapphire. Once the sapphire creates itself in the earth’s crust, it undergoes strong pressures and temperatures. The material forms itself around the zircons, provoking halos that we can perfectly recognize thanks to an instrument, the polarizing filter. Two very distant geological eras are reunited in this stone.

    color declined itself under three references of the Munsell Book of Color, it is not by chance. By using two light sources, a warm and a cold one, the stone goes from blue to purple. It is what we call a ‘color change’. This makes the stone more mysterious.

    Bicolor Tourmaline of 6,86 ct., with a nice transparency.

Modified rectangular scissor-cut particulary well executed. Luminous stone with a soft luster. Discreet grainings.

    and pale green. This is why the stone is considered bicolor. To be more precise, the lines with more intense colors navigate through the stone, making it multicolor. Indeed, the pale green, the darker green, the pink, the salmon, the raspberry lines coexist with delicacy following a tender and relatively symmetric distribution.

    Lot of four round cabochons rhodochrosite of a nice purity. Quite homogeneous intense pink color and translucency in some parts. Their coral-like color and shape allow them to be classified among the "candy" gems, referring to the soft colors of childhood. Two different formats.  Small graining and fissures, consequences of the nature of the stone.

    Expert notes :
    This spinel has no less than three colors on the same page in the Munsell Book of Color. What does this mean? We are confronted to a stone that has developed strong nuances in the same tonality. A declination on the same theme is not common.

    Dimensions : 13,00 x 9,17 x 6,78 mm. 

    Expert notes:
    This ruby is one of the first faceted stones by Greenland Ruby, which initiated its mines in 2017. The stone described here is from the 2018 production. With this quality and size, we enter the exceptional category. As the famous gemologist, Vincent Pardieu, claims : rubies from Greenland are certainly amongst the most ancient on earth. When we move the ruby, a few sparks of orange could tend towards the color of a padparadscha. It is subtle yet delivers a fiery element to the stone.
