Catalogue Note

"The described sapphires exhibit remarkable weights of 16.909 ct and 15.776 ct, respectively. The two gemstones form a perfectly matching pair in size, shape and attractive saturated blue colour, combined with an excellent purity. [...]Their saturated blue colour is due to a combination of well-balanced trace elements in the gemstone, typical and characteristic for the finest sapphires of Mogok, Burma."
