There are a ton of black sapphires on eBay, but if you can buy one that is not resin-impregnated you have a real jewel.  Virtually all of the current supply in the market is treated.  I have this 7.15 carat beauty from old stock and I am proud to offer it here on the bitcoin forum.  For someone who is interested in untreated and truly rare gemstones, this is a spectacular star sapphire that is beautiful for the centerpiece in your collection or as a piece of fine heirloom-quality jewelry. 



This gemstone is completely untreated.  It has not been heated or resin-impregnated.  It was mined here in Thailand in Chanthaburi province near Bangkacha mountain.  These stones are extraordinarily hard to find untreated and of such a high quality with a superb star.



Of course as with any gemstone that we offer you can order a laboratory report for this stone.  I am happy to get you a report from AIGS, GIA, GRS, Tokyo Gem Lab, Hallmark, or any other laboratory here in Bangkok.  The cost depends on the lab as each one is different.  I am confident that this stone is untreated and natural and would welcome a laboratory's opinion on the matter!



This auction starts at 125BTC.  The minimum bid increment is 1BTC, and it will run for 3 days.

Nice stone for sure.
You probably know for how much those go elsewhere, where you can assume that they are treated with various things.
How would someone be sure this stone is not treated? That only warrants the higher price.

Not implying anything here, don't get me wrong. But, in the end, one stone looks like another ;-)

That's a great question.  There are a great many respected gem labs here in Bangkok, and you choose the lab that does the report.  World-leading gemologists at AIGS, GIT, GRS Swisslab, or GIA could examine this stone and issue an independent report demonstrating that it is natural and free of treatments, although some of the more economical choices like Tokyo Gem Lab (renowned for excellence with corundum), or the very competent Hallmark in the Jewelry Trade Center are all fine choices.

Although the price of laboratory report is not included in the price, it can cost as little as $25 with Hallmark.  GIA will charge perhaps $350, GRS 300, and I don't remember the others but it seems Tokyo Gem Lab is around $50.

By the way, you are welcome to order an independent report from the lab of your choice with any stone I sell.  There sure are a lot of people in the gemstone trade, but very few make an offer like this.

I'm assuming you're taking the HKD or USD value into account.
