Freeform Cut Fuschia-Red Sapphire, Africa, 1.63 cts

his stone has been heat treated to brighten color. Many untreated red african sapphires (rubies) look like dark garnets unless they are heated to remove the slight blue tone. A very nice stone for the price. This stone does have a color shift more toward fuscia or a rich pink in some outdoor lighting and is an excellent red under incandescent light.
