1 Million Dollars in Sapphires - Most Colorful Gemstone?
All different colors, all around the world and over a million dollars, today's unboxing video is all about sapphires.
September's birthstone belongs to the corundum mineral family, which also includes rubies. While sapphires are commonly associated with the color blue, they actually come in a range of stunning hues, including yellow, pink, purple, orange, green, and even colorless. The most prized sapphires exhibit vivid, saturated colors with high transparency and minimal inclusions. Exceptionally large sapphires, known as "fancy sapphires," can command higher values due to their rarity.
Throughout history, sapphires have held deep cultural and symbolic significance. They have adorned the crowns and jewelry of royalty, symbolizing wisdom, nobility, divine favor and have continued to hold their significance in modern times, being a popular choice for engagement rings and other fine jewelry pieces, representing enduring love and elegance.
