It is really not worthwhile to heat treat Eldarado Bar/ Missouri River Sapphires as only 10 to 15 percent will be amenable to the treatment. Rock Creek /Phillipsburg Sapphires on the other hand treat very well. I just sent my 3 largest Eldarado Bar Sapphires off to be cut and I think I can live with the blue-green color. I also have 12 Small Yogos being cut. Can't wait to see how they turn out!  Good Luck :)
