Sapphire 
The color of sapphire can be blue, purple, green, yellow, pink, even black and colorless, with characteristic silky glow.

The most beautiful specimens of sapphire stones can be found in Sri Lanka (Ceylon), Thailand, India, Burma, Madagascar, Australia and Brasil.

If the sapphire is coming from Burma, they are considered more costly than those from Ceylon or Madagascar. This is due to their glorious blue color. The sapphires from India are the rarest of all, which can make them more expensive as their deposits in this part of the world have been depleted a long time ago.
