Note:This gem is from the Eldarado Bar along the Missouri river , just below the Canyon Ferry Dam. A new source for me , The Blaze-N-Gems Mine.I have mined at the Eldorado Bar in my younger days with some success. It was extraordinarily hard work.


This stone is richly colored and of a sky blue so typical of Missouri River stones.Like most Montana sapphires it does have a "steely" quality , especially inside under artificial light. . I think that whatever gives the stone the " steely " character also gives them a brilliance not seen in other sapphires from other locations around the world.
