An enchanting, unheated Sapphire.  Purple has to be one of the most stunning colors for fancy Sapphire - particularly this rich, almost 'grape jelly' shade.  There are almost no other gems with the higher optical properties of Sapphire that come in this color.  The cutting is excellent and the stone is completely eye clean.  Stones in this color range tend to have a bluish color shift in daylight, so you may indeed catch some bluish flashes in this stone - just an interesting property that makes these even more beguiling.  With an AGL Sapphire Brief attesting that the stone is natural and unheated.  Great larger size for the cost.
