Gold was first discovered in Yogo Creek, Montana USA in 1866 and though 'blue pebbles' were found alongside the gold, it was not until 1884 that they were recognized as Yogo sapphires (the term YOGO is the preferred wording for the gems found in the Yogo Gulch, part of the Little Belt Mountains in Judith Basin County of Montana)

these gems are a soft cornflower blue and are sprinkled with tiny shades of clear to dark blue inclusions. these beautiful simple rocks weigh in at 2.7 carats and measure a rough 5-7mm, they are embraced by my 18k (750) green gold* alchemy and are ready for your ears today ♥ xo 

 

the MOHS scale of hardness for the yogo sapphire is the same as any sapphire: 9.0 (one down from the diamond)
