Ceylon Origin and color
GIA report: I am so confident that this stone will perform unders scrutiny that I am willing to have th GIA (Gemological Institute of America) grade and report on this stone if requested. There is an additional charge and wait time if a report is added. Typical turnaround time is an additional 4-6 weeks. Reports are non-refundable UNLESS the report comes back with a treatment other than basic heat. If you would like to preview a stone first and then order a GIA report at a later date, this is also a service I provide.
All gemstones come with a 15 day return policy, no questions asked. Treatment information: The vast majority of sapphires are treated with heat treatment, which is a simple and permanent treatment which improves the color saturation in a stone. It is NOT affected by re-polishing, cleaning, steaming or ultrasonic cleaners. This stone has basic heat treatment. Some sapphires are also "fracture filled" which uses dyes, glass and/or polymers to fill in the cracks and hide inclusions in a stone. This is NOT a fracture filled sapphire. Fracture filled stones can crack under pressure, and are not permanent treatments, as they can be affected by cleaning, polishing and ultrasonics. It is important to know what you are getting. If you have any questions, please let me know.
