The cushion-cut stone is one of the world's largest and most famous sapphires (its size about that of an egg) that was cut from a crystal mined in Sri Lanka. The Logan Sapphire is named after Mrs. Polly Logan, who donated the gemstone to the Smithsonian Institution in 1960.
The Logan Sapphire is set in a brooch surrounded by 20 round brilliant cut diamonds weighing, in total, 16 carats (3.2 g). It is currently on display at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., alongside the Bismarck Sapphire Necklace and the Hall Sapphire and Diamond Necklace.
