Sapphires and the picturesque backdrop

20121125-213640.jpg

Hi guys this a picture I took from my hotel that I was staying while in Katharagama
For the gem mining. It’s over looking a stunning lake. I have below
A few of the the Rough Sapphires….

As you can see I have flashed a light from underneath to get an idea of the inclusions and color.
I might have to heat some pieces, but I always prefer the un heated.
But let’s wait and see after the gems have been sawn first.
