Catalogue Note

"Its saturated blue colour, poetically also referred to as 'royal blue', is due to a combination of well-balanced trace elements in the gemstone, typical and characteristic for the finest sapphires of Mogok, Burma. This sapphire has been perfectly cut from the rough crystal to show its colour at its best... A natural sapphire from Burma of this size and quality is very rare and exceptional and thus can be considered a true treasure of nature", SSEF appendix letter, 25 September 2013.
