However, before we discuss the end, we must first explore the beginning. So let’s explore: The Pretty Pink Sapphire.


Pink Sapphire Deposits exist all around the world, but the two giant pink sapphire deposits are Sri Lanka(Ceylon) and Madagascar. The former being the oldest producer of sapphires in the world, and the latter although younger is a close competitor for pink sapphires. Additionally, sapphires from each deposit have their own characteristics and iniquities.


The introduction of Madagascan sapphires into the gemstone market was approximately in the month of October in 1998. Additionally, the focus and development of the bare and barren land of the Ilakaka region, to a modern-day sapphire capital brought refreshed eyes to Pink Sapphires. The Ilakaka region is now synonymous with pink sapphires. A characteristic of sapphires from the region especially pink is having microscopic dust inclusions within the stones. This clarity feature of Madagascan origin sapphires is less on better stones from the region. Despite this, stones that do have these features, surprisingly to the naked eye, could be placed on a pedestal. Remember, although the region is a large producer of pink corundum, it also produces sapphires of a variety of hues and saturations. (Read more on Sapphires of Madagascan Origin)
