For sale is a supberb black star sapphire from the Queensland gem fields. First I have to emphasis that the pics dont represent the true quality of this
wonderful gemstone! but they do show that the stone possess a six ray star, as would be expected. These are VERY DIFFICULT to cut and polish, and this work was done by one of Australia’s masters Nelson Robinson of Terrigal, NSW. (Past president of Australian Facetters Guild, AND a teacher of the craft) The star is strong and is has the classic golden rays, which is just plain pretty against the highly polished deep black cab sapphire. Perfect proportioned oval ! The weight is 3 cts! Please compare our price! I can guarantee that you could not find a better cutter of this material anywhere in Australia. If you have any questions please feel free to ask, I could try and take other pics if necessary. Star sapphires from Australia are quite uncommon, and are not seen often in the market , this is mainly because of the difficulty of doing a fine job!
