The trip was quite exhausting for all of them, but they brought back some amazing Sapphire and Ammonite, which was featured on the live show on Oct 5th, 2022. You can watch the show here. While the trip wasn't the most successful mining trip for Steve, he was able to purchase quite a bit of great rough from the mine owners. The advantage of this is that Steve can pick out the best rough, and cut some awesome stones that will be available for purchase from you. And we can set these Sapphires in any sort of mounting you want....rings, pendants, earrings and bracelets.
While almost anyone can travel to Montana and look for Montana Sapphire, most mine owners don't give you the access Steve gets. This is due to him being in the industry for over 40 years and building up some great contacts. He also traveled their last year where he had a slightly more successful trip at actually mining the Sapphire. But he believes this time around he actually was able to purchase finer Montana Sapphire than ever before.
