Let's talk about a gem that's truly rare--this sapphire has a secret star that flashes bright in direct lighting!
This hexagonal 2.6 ct trapiche sapphire from Besal, Pakistan, is set in 14kt gold.
The star pattern is produced by aligned fine needle-like inclusions oriented with respect to the original crystal faces of the gem.
When the gem is rocked and tilted, the star lights up and appears iridescent.
This gem is rare and each piece is unique -- shape and size will vary!
