Strange Sapphire Flat

While sorting some small sapphire mine run recently, came across this strange piece of sapphire. Only a small piece and very flat so not cuttable but interesting to collectors who like gems that are a little unusual. Three very distinct patches of colour – blue, red and almost clear (slightly yellowish).

Click on the images to see a larger version of the photos – the lower one shows how thin and flat this piece is but the colours are very unusual – a definite tricolor sapphire.
