A sizable blue Sapphire that has a deep, rich blue color in concert with that particular velvety appearance you sometimes find in these.  It's likely microscopic inclusions of rutile that causes this softening of the brilliance - regardless, it is a beguiling effect.  As for locality, we simply have no idea - a good reminder that judging a stone on its own merits (vs. its locale) is always a good idea.  Excellent size and totally eye clean, this stone was one we recently liberated from some old stock - hence the comparatively competitive cost.  Great polish and no issues whatsoever.  With an AGL Sapphire Brief.
