Colour-changing sapphire

I had one of the sapphires I found in Main Creek years ago cut recently, and when I took it back home I realised it had fairly strong colour change between natural light and artificial light.

The first photo is taken by the window, in natural light. You can see the stone is fairly gray, but in a shade of blue. The second photo shows the same stone under artificial light indoors. It is clearly pale violet!
