Natural Chocolate Sapphire Rosecut Gemstone Lot.
Sapphire is a precious gemstone, a variety of the mineral corundum, consisting of aluminium oxide with trace amounts of elements such as iron, titanium, chromium, vanadium, or magnesium. The name sapphire is derived from the Latin “saphirus” and the Greek “sapheiros”, both of which mean blue. It is typically blue, but natural “fancy” sapphires also occur in yellow, purple, orange, and green colors; “parti sapphires” show two or more colors.
The inclusions are described as “very light”, although there may have been more before the heat treatment. The major determinate of quality in a chocolate sapphire (other than the color itself) is clarity; they need to be ‘eye-clean’, i.e., without any visible inclusions, in order to be considered gem quality.
Sapphire is linked to the throat chakra and can be used to enhance self-expression. Royal blue sapphire also activates the third eye chakra, which can help you become more aware of your responsibility for your thoughts and feelings. It is said to enhance your integrity and wisdom.
