Madagascan Sapphire – White – Radiant – 0.55 Carats

$ 800.00

A delightfully baby pink sapphire from the Mines of Madagascar, what more do you need for a piece of jewellery. Sometimes going simple is the best solution, and this sapphire even makes something so simple absolutely pop. This is primarily due to the impeccable faceting by our lapidarists in Sri Lanka, giving this delight a radiant cut. This allows the colour to blast out of the stone, when rays of light hit it, leaving everyone around you frozen in its awe. Despite the hint of baby pink showing through the primary colour is colourless/white, where the stone itself has the dimensions of 4.04mm by 5.12mm and a pavilion depth of 2.89mm. Some might call it a bit too small, but we call it the perfect size, for a customer with a budget, but still wants bang for their buck!

Grab this colour blaster and we guarantee that it won’t be something that you regret. In fact, you’ll get addicted.

MADAGASCAN SAPPHIRE

The first find, although small, was in the early 1990s in the north of the island. Conjunctively, the discovery in the small southern village of Ilakaka increased the country’s relevance in the gemstone industry. Once a small, poverty-stricken hamlet with a population of just 40 residents, the town suddenly expanded exponentially. What was once a sleepy truck stop of small shacks, suddenly became the mecca of sapphire miners. Over a two year period, hordes of people almost 60,000 strong descended on Ilakaka wishing to make a fortune. They came from impoverished towns all over the island and from Sri Lanka, Thailand and many other countries

Before 1998 the largest producers of sapphires were Sri Lanka and Thailand. However, between 1998 and 2007 Madagascar became the largest producer of sapphires in the world. Currently, the country houses many mines, owned by international companies who are mining gemstones commercially. Smaller mines run by locals who are using traditional mining methods sit right alongside these commercially owned mines in mutualism…
