Sapphire Information

Sapphires are formed from a mineral known as corundum, the single-crystal form of aluminum oxide. It can be found naturally as gemstones or may be manufactured in large crystal balls for a variety of applications.

The sapphire includes any gemstone varieties of the mineral corundum excluding the red ruby.

Sapphire is most commonly blue but also occurs as green, orange, pink, purple, yellow, green, color shift and white. A sapphire colored orange-red is sometimes called a 'padparadsha'.

Sapphires have a hardness of 9.0 on the Mohs scale and are perfect for faceted gemstones.

Traditionally most sapphires have been found and mined in Sri Lanka, Madagascar and Myanmar.
