The silky sapphire is here. I feel like I should caveat my post by saying I am mostly a pricescope observer... and am very lucky in that irl I love stones with quirky personalities that it seems like the majority of folks here would not be into. This stone seems to be along those lines
My first impression was that the stone is quite brown in person rather than peachy orange (not shocked given the price & origin of the rough.) In various lights different colors came out, mostly on the pink/dusty rose side, and the cutting is quite lovely. I haven't seen the stone show as orange as in Gene's photos.
Initial impression indoors with poor lighting:

Thanks for sharing. I love the sun shot as well and the sleepiness really accents this gem.
