|9634 Ruby Star,
Md Dk Purplish Red, 6.40 cts oval cabochon measuring 10.1x9.3x6.2 mm, v lt incl, from Sri Lanka. A very fine ruby cabochon that displays a strong six ray star on a transparent body with just very light silk present.

|11158 Sapphire Star,
Dk Intense Blue, 6.14 cts oval cabochon measuring 9.2x8.0x7.9 mm, eye clean, from Sri Lanka. An exceptional sapphire star with a transparent body and a strong six ray star. We were told that often a piece of rough with this clarity would be heated to remove the silk and then faceted, however, our source at the time knew we were searching for a top quality star sapphire and had it cut to produce this world class gem.
Priced at $2,200/carat or $13,508.00/gem
