What Is a Fancy Sapphire?
A Fancy Sapphire ceylon is a gem-quality corundum that is any color other than red, blue, or colorless. The mineral known as corundum occurs in a large number of colors. When it is red, it is known as Ruby, when Blue it is known as Sapphire, and when clear or colorless it is known as White Sapphire. All of the other colors of gem quality corundum are “fancy sapphire.”
Fancy Sapphire Sources
Sri Lanka and Thailand have historically been important sources of Natural Fancy Sapphires. Smaller amounts comparatively have been produced in many other countries. We source our Fancy Sapphire Large Stones from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and though we source Sapphires from others, Ceylon Sapphires are from the best source and best quality for the market and your Ceylon Sapphire Engagement rings.
Natural Color in Fancy Sapphire Large Stones from Ceylon
The corundum stone has one of the greatest natural color ranges in mineralogy. It occurs in nice hues of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Corundum of other colors are produced when trace amounts of other elements or defects in the corundum crystal lattice cause selective absorption of certain wavelengths of light. The causes of color in Ruby and Sapphire are both well researched and well documented. Chromium is the primary cause of the red color of Ruby and the color of Pink Sapphire. A combination of iron and titanium causes the color of Blue Sapphire.
The cause of color in the many hues of Fancy Sapphire is less well researched. Vanadium can cause a grayish blue to green color. Iron and a missing electron can produce a strong yellow color. Iron alone can cause a pale yellow color. Chromium with a missing electron can cause an orange color. Interactions between some trace elements and lattice defects produce many other colors. The most popular colors are usually pure hues, such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. All of these, with the exception of emerald green, are found naturally in Sapphire.
