The material for this little Sapphire was extremely thin, and we weren't entirely sure what it would look like once we finished cutting it. Once cleaned, we were pleasently surprised to see this beautiful blue come through!
Melanie cut this in the design "Ruination", written by Arya Akhavan.
This Sapphire is heated and there is an inclusion only seen in magnification.
Sapphire has been popular throughout history, and that trend doesn't seem to be changing. Sapphire is a mineral called corundum, and it doesn't only come in the well-known royal blue. Corundum comes in an array of colours and shades, including white. The popular Ruby also belongs to this family as a red corundum. Sapphires and Rubies have a hardness of 9, making it the hardest coloured stone, and is well suited for daily wear. Sapphire also happens to be the traditional birthstone for those born in September.
