Last fall I visited gem mountain and had a blast. I found two nice stones between 2.5-3cts in the rough. One a yellowy milky color, and another a beautiful green color. Both needed to be heat treated by gem mountain to clear inclusions though. On a happy not the green sapphire stayed the natural color and the yellow one turned into a lovely skyblueish color after being heated.

Pic of them in the rough, the top two on the left. The second one is a great green but its bad lighting

So cool! That's definitely on my bucket list. I think it would be awesome to find rough and then see what happens when it's heated/cut. :appl:
