Star Sapphire Cabochon

A sizable cabochon featuring a striking grayish-blue Star Sapphire showcases a distinctive optical effect known as asterism. This captivating phenomenon originates from minuscule needle-like inclusions that refract light, resulting in the formation of a star-shaped pattern on the surface of the gemstone.

Mogok, which is presently recognized as Myanmar (formerly Burma), has gained a reputation for being a prolific source of some of the world's most exceptional sapphires, including those with asterism. With a rich heritage of mining high-quality gemstones, the region has consistently delivered outstanding stones. This particular gemstone was expertly cut and polished by local craftsmen using traditional techniques, highlighting their native craftsmanship.
