It's well known that Montana Sapphire is capable of showing some strong color zoning.  That said, we have never seen this combination quite like this before - a medium pink gem with a strong zone of orange; the result being what you might call an American Padparadscha!  We picked this from a lot of several hundred Montana stones solely based on this attractive and unusual combination.  Great cutting and a fine size round, this is a conversation starter for sure.  Quite rare and decidedly lovely.
