Therefore, for your convenience, listed below are some key points that you should inspect a gorgeous gemstone for the beautiful lady that is in you or for the one that is your mother, sister, wife or daughter.

  • Enquire properly that the stone you are buying is a naturally produced sapphire or if it is created in a laboratory.

You may end up paying more for a piece thinking that it is a naturally brilliant gem.
  • Sapphires may have different hues and undertones of other colors. Examine the gem under different lights and then determine its shade. Do not end up making a fool out of yourself.
  • Check the tone and the darkness, since it is a crucial factor in determining the stone’s worth. An ideal tone for the sapphire is medium to dark. The stone shouldn’t be extremely dark in color neither should the color be so pale that it resembles other lighter colored stones.
  • Take a look on the saturation and intensity of the color in a sapphire since it is these two factors that impact the brilliance and make the gem look vibrant and vivid. The dull grayish look that some stone might possess is to be avoided STRICTLY.
  • Higher the clarity of the sapphire, the better it is. The clarity factor of the sapphire is responsible for the flawless and the clear look that can be seen in case of diamond. The inclusions in the crystal are mostly hidden and are not visible through a naked eye but are clearly visible under magnification. Higher the inclusion level, the lower the radiance of the stone.
  • Examine the cut of the sapphire. This is another important factor which has a tremendous contribution towards its excellence. The symmetry, proportions, width, height, dimensions etc. all need to be inspected carefully before making the decision. A finely cut sapphire sparkles and thrives in any viewing angle.

All these points should serve the purpose of your purchase of a quality sapphire.

This is because it is seen that copper usually turns a greenish hue as it ages and the many things that contain copper are green in color. But, recently it has been discovered that copper is not to be blamed for the green color that the gem holds. The actual culprit that brings forth the green color in amazonite is the presence of lead in the stone.

The amazonite doesn’t come across easily. At some point of time the only place to extract this stone was in the Lumen Mountains which are located 50 miles southwest of Chelyabinsk, Russia. In this peculiar location amazonite occurs in the granite rocks of the mountains.

The very fact that amazonite is not easily found increases the value of the jewelry items that contain it. The higher the value is on the materials that create the beads, then the higher the price of the actual beads will be.

The gem has been worn by ladies since ages and they considered it sacred, and many amazonite amulets have been excavated by archeologists from Scythian burial sites that existed long ago. Some of the old cultures, including that of the Greeks, believed that Amazonite has some of the fine properties that would be passed on to the wearer.
