SAPPHIRE

Composition

  • A member of the mineral species corundum

  • The mineral corundum is composed only of aluminum and oxygen, and it requires a growth environment that’s free of silicon. However, silicon is a very common element, making natural corundum relatively uncommon. In its purest state, corundum is actually colourless

Colours

  • In the Blue range : pure blue or in the greenish blue to violetish blue range

  • Fancy colours : any corundum which does not qualify as a ruby (red) is called a fancy colour sapphire. They come in violet, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple and intermediate hues

WHAT PEOPLE SAID

Lucifer Magazine

HP Blavatsky Vol7 - Septembre 1890

The Sapphire, sacred to the Sun, and called the stone of stones, cured boils, restored weak sight, extinguished fires, mended the manners of its wearers and made the melancholy cheerful. Until the time of " ye dreadful fire " of London there was, in old St. Paul's Cathedral, a famous sapphire presented by Richard de Preston, citizen and grocer, which cured infirmities in the e es of all who resorted to its virtues. The stone, however, perished with the cathedral.
