Nature, the mother of all-natural gemstones, has blessed humanity with an uncountable amount of beauty, and Natural Sapphire is undoubtedly one of the cardinal gemstones celebrated today.
Natural Sapphires are among the world's most famous gemstones today, in addition to ruby, emerald, and diamonds. This is very acceptable given the endless amount of colors this gemstone presents.
Natural Sapphires were found thousands of years ago. Back into the First Temple, 957 BCE. Sapphire was part of the twelve most precious stones used in the High Priest's breastplate. To date, nobody knows who the first person to discover sapphire was.
Sapphire derived its name from the Latin word "Sapphire," which translates into modern English as Blue. Sapphire comes from Corundum, the same mineral that also produces rubies. While the desired color of sapphire is blue, sapphire does come in all colors of the rainbow, including Yellow, orange, pink, purple, violet, and even intermediate hues. Some rare sapphires do display a phenomenon termed color change. These sapphires often change color from blue in daylight fluorescent lighting to even purple under incandescent light. Some natural sapphires can be even black, grey, and even brown. Any other color apart from Blue Sapphire is called Fancy Sapphire.
Since time memorial sapphires have always been associated with dignity and loyalty and are the go-to gem for royals. Countless sources believed sapphires symbolize wisdom, luck, virtue, and holiness for royals.
When set in an engagement ring, sapphire means faithfulness and pure sincerity.
The most precious and sought-after blue sapphires are the Cornflower Blue Colour, Royal Blue, and the imperial Kashmir Blue Sapphires.
For Fancy Sapphires, one of the precious colors is the rare Pinkish Orange sapphire knowns as Padparadscha, named from the Sinhalese for lotus blossom.
