Loose bluesapphire gemstones have long been an AfricaGems.com specialty. We carry a vast selection of very fine blue sapphire gems. Blue sapphire is a member of the corundum family of gemstones, and unlike ruby gemstones, has many different source locations. Blue sapphires from Burma and Kashmir are the most highly sought after blue sapphires, followed by Ceylon blue sapphires. The cornflower blue color of a high quality blue sapphire gem is the standard by which other blue sapphires are judged. Most sapphires of any color are heat treated, which is always noted on any sapphire AfricaGems.com sells. Fine quality sapphires with no heat treatment command the highest prices. Some sapphires have been altered with chemical diffusion; AfricaGems does not sell these sapphires. Many of our sapphire gemstones are accompanied by a third party certificate of appraisal and retail value. Many of these sapphires have been recut in the USA to American standards and cannot be compared to native cut gems. Our USA cut sapphire gemstones have unsurpassed brilliance and a much sharper "look".
We are pleased to offer you an outstanding selection of free sized Blue Sapphire gemstones up to 2 carats in weight. Our amazing collection boasts the gamut of faceted gemstone cuts and shapes and many of our stones are top quality with gemstone certificates. Blue Sapphires, in addition to being the birthstone gem for the month of September, are also considered to be one of the three precious gemstones along with Ruby and Emerald. Sapphire gemstones, because of their rarity and value, have always been an elegant and regal choice for jewelry. AfricaGems is a trusted provider of top quality loose gemstones.
