What is A Sapphire?

Sapphire is a gem form of Corundum which is Aluminium Oxide. Pure crystalline corundum without impurities is colourless and not very valuable as a gem. However, minute amount of impurities of iron, titanium, nickel, chromium, vanadium causes colours in corundum. The combination of different impurities or different ions causes different colours. In the early days only the blue stones were considered to be sapphires while other colours: yellow, orange, green and pink were known as fancy colours.

A joy to spend some time with John & Anna this afternoon. Loved the authentic poster featuring my mum and Nunans Sapphire. A treat to hear the stories of the different mines, the sapphires and the memories . Thanks for your patience while I looked at your gorgeous gems.
