Many of the blues that I have and love have either a rich sapphire blue look or sing of the tropical waters. This straight laced blue follows a more stalwart path to success. It does not play with green much and may be a bit gray. Still it should be taken seriously because it has substance and is not just another piece of eye candy. It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal. The moderately tone toned gemstone is only slightly dichroic. It weighs 1.17 carats.
