    I am New , never seen such a stone, I was wondering if someone could offer advice if it’s worth getting checked.

    Looks like a possible huge piece of corundum, but the color looks too deep and consistent to be not treated. Where did you get it? I don’t know what you paid but know that US lab reports are costly.

    I found it on ebay
    i paid maybe $100 for it. I was thinking if it was faked then $100 is a nice novelty piece.

    Hi the Certificate states it is a Blue sapphire you can check the certificate at the web address at the bottom of the photo and yes I would get a second opinion on it as it is a large cut specimen
    hope this Helap

    Sorry to say this, but I wouldn’t pay more than $10 for the stone but it is more worth paying the fee to an American lab to find out exactly what it is and how it’s treated.
