The most important and most requested color in the gemstone sapphire is blue. Here, the hue in this gem ranges from “cornflower blue” (a lighter blue) to “royal blue” (a deep ink blue). Sapphires with few inclusions are more common than, say, ruby. If you want to buy blue sapphire, make sure that the stone “lives” – that the stone sparkles, that there is a good interplay of intense color, a good cut, and as few inclusions as possible, with as high a carat count as possible. Just as legendary rubies come from Burma, the most famous sapphire site is the Kashmir region in India. The site that supplies the largest quantity today though is Sri Lanka.
