Aegis, named for the shield carried by Zeus and Athena in Greek mythology, is a one-of-a-kind shield-shaped portrait cut yellow sapphire from Sri Lanka.
Let its large shape and looking glass center protect you from the boring everyday, and spark your creativity! This "Mine to Market" sapphire traces its roots from the Nivithigala area in the Ratnapura district of Sri Lanka where my vendor sources the rough directly, then oversees the cutting to ensure quality and provenance.
Aegis is a 2.21 carat natural sapphire with no heat treatment. It measures 12.40mm long.
