The Sapphire is the month of September’s birthstone. The name Sapphire is Greek for the color blue, which at first glance couldn’t be more fitting. However, is a wrong assumption that blue is the “only” color of a Sapphire Gem. Sapphires come in an array of colors from the rainbow. While the blue colored Sapphire is more commonly known and worn, the rare pink colored corundum is just as prestigious. White Sapphires are also rare yet popularly common.
The blue-violet stone has been around for centuries worn by some of the most nobles figures throughout our history and time. Sapphires are found all over the world, but regions of eastern Australia, Myanmar, Kashmir, and Sri-Lanka know to home next to perfect Sapphires. The purer blue of the gem, the higher the cost of the Sapphire. However many of us tend to favor the deeper blue gemstones.
The cost of a natural (Blue) Sapphire varies on different intricate detail.
The Sapphire is a tough and durable gem, and its strength matches its beauty. The Sapphire and Ruby gemstones are the only two corundum (rock-forming mineral), however, the only other gemstone stronger than a Sapphire is the Diamond. The gemstone is mined out of alluvial deposits primarily underground. Sapphire commercial mining locations can be found in various countries, like Afghanistan, Australia, China, Nepal, Thailand, USA, and several others. Each Sapphire is different depending on the region it was birthed. Each gem’s value is not guaranteed to based on the region of origin.
