First, what is a sapphire? A sapphire is a gemstone that is mostly composed of aluminum oxide and aluminum silicate minerals with colors ranging from blue-colorless, bluish-gray, greenish-gray, yellowish-green, reddish-orange, white and pink colors. Sapphires can also have inclusions such as cracks, mossy patches and even crystals of calcite or fluorite known as rosettes.
Second, why should I buy a sapphire? Sapphires have several uses in our daily lives such as jewelry making, industrial applications such as cutting and polishing gemstones, research on gems and gemology, scientific instruments such as spectrographs and polarizing microscopes which use optical interference techniques such as holography (see Holographic Hologram), computer displays due to their good color dispersion properties (see Color Dispersive Glass) related
How to know if a sapphire is real or fake?
The first step in buying the best sapphires is to know what you are looking for. Knowing what type of sapphire you want to buy will help you avoid buying a fake sapphire that may be more expensive than it is worth. Sapphires can be divided into two categories. The categories are natural and synthetic, but there are some gemstones that cannot be easily classified as one or the other.
Natural: These types of sapphires are a result of nature and occur in the earth’s crust. They may have been mined or found in nature, but they could also have been hand-carved by someone. Natural sapphires are not always easy to find because they usually occur deep within the earth’s surface.
Synthetic: These types of sapphire gems were created by humans through various means, such as chemical reactions and heat treatment. Synthetic stones can also have natural characteristics like color and clarity if they were created with natural materials like corundum or beryl. Synthetic stones are typically cheaper than natural stones since they don’t require any mining or treatment process before being made into jewelry or etched glassware.
How to buy quality sapphires?
You need to find a reputable gemstone dealer. If you are not sure where to find this, consider asking the people in your social circle. Ask them for recommendations and find someone who knows about gems. Ask for their opinion on different dealers and ask for referrals.
When you do find a good gemstone dealer, ask them about the quality of their sapphires. They should also be able to tell you what type of stones they have available so that you can avoid bad ones. Once you know what kind of stones they have, ask them questions like:
- What is the cut grade of their sapphires?
- What is the clarity grade of their sapphires?
- How many carats does one sapphire weigh?
After answering these questions, go online to check out different jewelers’ websites and see what prices they offer on each stone type. You should also make sure that any jeweler has been in business for at least 5 years with an established reputation and that they’re a member of a reputable organization like GIA or AGS (the Gemological Institute of America and the American Gem Society).
