There are 4 sapphire colors:
The most well-known sapphires are blue and they can be dark blue, vidid blue and pure blue. The color is due to iron and titanium. For centuries, sapphires were basically associated with the color blue from ancient Greek « saphheiros »» which means blue. When the word sapphire is used without a color qualifier it is called corundum blue, whereas a sapphire of a different color will include the color description for example a pink sapphire, a green sapphire,…
Asia: Thaiand, Sry Lanka (former Ceylan) and Myanmar (former Burma). The most beautiful blue sapphries were mined in Kashmir but those mines are now depleted. As a result any sapphire identified as having come from Kashmir is of significant value.
Burma: today the most beautiful sapphires in the world come from the valley of Mogok in Burma. Over 1,000 ruby and sapphire mines can be found in an area of more than 4,800 Km² (almost 3,000 sq mi), The largest sapphire in the world, 63,000 carats was found in this region!
Australia: leading blue and yellow sapphire producer, produces average quality gems.
Madagascar: with the decline in production in Myanmar and Thailand, Madagascar (Andranondambo and Ilakaka mining regions in the south of the island) has become one of the main production zones in the world.
Depending on their origin, blue sapphires can be broken down into a rich chromatic range from pale blue to dark blue or turquoise with purple hues.
