The Natural Sapphire Company launched its sale campaign featuring Montana sapphires this month. The company that although sapphires can be found throughout the state, the majority of the finds can be attributed to four major locales: Yogo Gulch, Rock Creek, Dry Cottonwood Creek, and the gravel bars along the Missouri River northeast of Helena.
“Montana sapphires have very interesting colors. They’re often found in a greenish blue tone, but other colors from purple to light blue do occur. Because of their extraordinary colors, each Montana sapphire is one of a kind,” said Michael Arnstein, the chief executive of The Natural Sapphire Company. “They’re truly stunning stones and a lot of our customers are interested in sapphires that were found right here in the country.”
The retailer is promoting a wide range of Montana sapphires, including rounds, ovals, emeralds, cushions, and pears.
