The Sapphire

Sapphire is a precious stone. It is a gem variety of corundum which can have multiple colors, except the red color which then designates only the ruby. We owe Jacques Louis de Bournon for having shown that the sapphire (oriental gem) and the corundum (adamantine spar) are one.

A little history...

The word sapphire would come from the Hebrew sappir, which means "the most beautiful thing". This word has its roots in Sanskrit "sauriratna", passing through Chaldean, Greek and then Latin "sapphirus".
Sapphire has sometimes been confused with lapis lazuli. Some believe that the Tables of the Law received by Moses on Mount Sinai were made of sapphire, others of lapis lazuli. This last rock was sometimes called sapphire in Europe, until the 12th century.
The Egyptians associated sapphire with truth and justice.


They are found all over the world, such as in Australia, Brazil, Madagascar. The most important deposits, and those which contain the most beautiful stones are generally in Asia: the mines of Kashmir, in India, in Sri Lanka where the cornflower (cornflower color) is produced, in the mines of Mogok in Burma.
