This is a lab created Czochralski pulled yellow sapphire which I faceted in a custom off-kilter square.  It weighs in at 9.4 carats and measures 10.8mm across.

My friend Arya is a huge lab crystal fanatic.  He was trying to have a high quality green cobalt sapphire grown, but unfortunately everything went wrong and it ended up being almost entirely cobalt-free (hence the name, 'nobalt' or 'Arya's Folly').  Fortunately it was also inadvertently contaminated with nickel, and after oxidation it turned a rich golden yellow color!  These cut gorgeous gems with a rich golden yellow color--even if it wasn't what was intended it still came out as very high quality sapphire rough.
