Good Sapphire crystals are hard to find, twins are even more rare, but to find true bicolor twins is off the charts. Now I say “true” bicolor twins, because I don’t really count a twinned crystal with varying degrees of blue as being multicolored necessarily. There’s no mistake with this piece as the color contrasting is about a defined as it gets for Sapphire. I’ve seen twinned Sapphires with blue and yellow hues in the same crystal, but I don’t know if I can remember seeing a twin like this with a rich inky blue and a vibrant baby pink together. The piece also shows a slightly different habit of twinning, as we most often see what is called a “fish tail” habit with a somewhat narrow / slender appearance, but this piece is more of a “butterfly” or “heart”-shaped twin. Along with the defined crystal faces, the piece is complete on the front and back, and has good internal gemminess when backlit. This one is unique folks, there are not many good crystallized examples of Sapphire on the market, but to find a bicolor twin such as this is just plain rare.
