Blue is the main colour of sapphire. Blue is also the favourite colour of some 50 per cent of all people, men and women alike. We associate this colour, strongly linked to the sapphire as it is, with feelings of sympathy and harmony, friendship and loyalty; feelings which belong to qualities that prove their worth in the long term- feelings in which it is not so much effervescent passion that is to the fore, but rather composure, mutual understanding and indestructible trust. Thus, the blue of the sapphire has become a colour which fits in with everything that is constant and reliable. That is one of the reasons why women in many countries wish for a sapphire ring on their engagement. The Sapphire symbolises loyalty, but at the same time it gives expression to people’s love and longing. The blue of sapphire even appears where nothing at all counts except clear-sightedness and concentrated mental effort. The first computer which succeeded in defeating a world chess champion bore that remarkable name “Deep Blue”.
What makes sapphires so fancy?
The gemstone in the corundum group consist of pure aluminium oxide which crystallised into wonderful gemstone a long time ago as a result of pressure and heat at a great depth. The presence of small amounts of other elements, especially iron and chrome, are responsible for the colouring, turning a crystal that was basically white into blue, red, yellow pink or greenish sapphire. However, this does not mean that every corundum is also a sapphire. For centuries, there were differences of opinion among the specialists as to which stones deserved to be called sapphires. Finally, it was agreed that the ruby-red ones, coloured by chrome, should be called “rubies” and all those which were not ruby-red “sapphires”.
