Description

Greek Sapphires are extremely rare and have never been seen before in such well-formed crystals. This specimen comes from a larger piece that I acquired from an old collection and that I have cleaned, trimmed and exposed its crystals, creating collector's grade specimens.

This is a very nice example with a well-exposed crystal with only the top termination missing and the other one inside the matrix.
