The Star of Ceylon

The Star of Ceylon, at 101.01 carats is is a great example of a high-quality star sapphire. Despite the weak star, this gem's high transparency and color that has been described as "medium purplish-blue" make it far more valuable than a larger star sapphire with a sharper star. The stone is part of a private collection in Seattle.
