Blue Sapphire Quality
The beauty of Blue Sapphire, its magnificent colors, its transparency, also its constancy and durability are qualities associated with this gemstone. To avoid getting acquainted with fraud dealers, one should mind the following guidelines while buying Blue Sapphire.
Color – Fine medium-dark blue sapphires of rich tone, with their cornflower blue color and a slight milky appearance, Blue Sapphires are considered to be the most beautiful gemstones. Color zoning (the uneven distribution of coloring in a gemstone) in a blue sapphire of natural origin is a very common phenomenon. Thus, a rough blue sapphire stone needs to be cut and faceted in a well planned manner to obtain a beautifully colored finished gem. Blue sapphires get their beautiful color tone from the trace elements iron and titanium.
Clarity – Color zoning and silk (included in rutile needles) are the most striking features of the sapphire gem. Other visible inclusions that are commonly found are crystals and feathers.
Origin – Sri Lanka was found to produce magnificent transparent gems on enhancement. Besides the Burmese and Sri Lankan mines, there are others that produce special good quality sapphires like the mines in Cambodia, Madagascar, Thailand, Australia, USA, Nigeria and Kenya.
