Sapphire 9

All gem quality corundum that is not red ruby is considered sapphire such as blue, orange, yellow, violet, green, white and pink. Unless a color is stated, sapphire is normally blue. Color change sapphires will change between blue and violet depending on the light. Sapphires and rubies are often found together in the same area, but one gem is usually more abundant. Sapphire deposits are in Eastern Australia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, East Africa and in the United States at various locations (Gem Mountain) and in the Missouri River near Helena, Montana. Sapphires are quite durable, but are still subject to chipping and fractures if handled roughly.

Protect all gems from scratches and sharp blows.
