A rare formation of Double Terminated Blue Ceylon Sapphire from Sri Lanka. I believe this specimen would be considered twinned as there appears to be two complete Sapphires growing out opposing each other from a central nodal point. Please forgive me if this is the incorrect terminology.Regardless this is a very uncommon formation of great elegance and beauty. It has sharp form and good luster. Each end is transparent with excellent color saturation and nice banding. The piece displays well from all sides and appears to be a complete floater. Sapphires as gems are thirty times more rare than gem quality diamonds.
