    A sapphire displays asterism, a six-rayed star, when there are tiny needle-like rutile inclusions growing in three orderly directions intersecting each other. Yet it is very difficult to have just the right amount of rutile needles present to create a distinct star effect and at the same time not too many that it would affect the stone’s visual transparency. This present is an excellent example of a gem-quality star sapphire that originates from Burma.
