Natural star sapphire is a fabulously beautiful stone. In its properties, star sapphire is a kind of corundum mineral. Such sapphires can also be called star sapphires. In English, their name is “star sapphire”. The peculiarity of these stones is that they possess a beautiful optical property – the effect of asterism. The stones with this effect have the form of a cabochon. At the same time, a light 6-ray star can be observed on the cabochon surface, which slides over the surface of the sapphire while rocking. This effect is due to the presence of oriented needle inclusions of rutile in sapphires.
Note that these minerals are not accepted to be heat treated, otherwise the thinnest rutile needles can dissolve from heating. The color of star sapphires (see photo) is usually blue, blue, pink, purple, gray. There are also black star sapphires. The so-called “old sapphires” of black color were one of the favorite stones of Elvis Presley. The most expensive starry sapphires have a saturated blue color, and the star’s rays are even and bright. For all its beauty and uniqueness, a star sapphire stone usually costs less than transparent specimens in faceting.
