Sapphire - Zazafotsy Quarry, Madagascar.
Showing an almost absurdly high saturation of color for the locale, this Sapphire shows a flooring vibrant purple and blue color which is contrasted perfectly by the earthy matrix beneath. This specimen also features an ideal crystal structure with a little flare as there is an unusual growth toward one side of the crystal creating a "tab" (view images). This is all tied together well by a striking luster which makes this piece stand out even in low light settings. This piece is free of damage.
