This pendant features a trapiche sapphire crystal slice. The sapphire weighs in at 5.8 carats, and measures 0.38 x 0.38 inches (9.8 x 9.7 mm).

This is a rare trapiche sapphire. Trapiche sapphires are a special subset of star sapphires--rather than showing six overlapping rays of light, the stones contain reflective inclusions of rutile which form a 6-rayed silver starburst within the gem. These were once called 'stationary' or 'fixed' stars, but since the discovery of the famed trapiche emeralds of Columbia they've been called trapiche sapphires. These stones are really striking in person, though it's hard to capture in a picture. The star twinkles as the stone is turned giving it a really unique look.

This stone is an interesting example--the star is centered on the right side, with two large silver rays flowing across the face of the stone.

I have a September birthday so I've always loved sapphire, and trapiche stones are probably my favorite variety. It is a great way to get something a bit different and unique while keeping to a familiar gemstone.
