Star Sapphire, the Star on Earth, Natural Gemstone by Star Lanka

May 05 14:36 2020
Star Lanka offers natural blue star sapphire to its discerning and esteemed customers. This gemstone, of the corundum family, displays a beautiful star on its surface, earning it the nickname – “The Star on Earth.”

According to announcements released by Star Lanka, the company has an excellent range of blue star sapphire in its inventory. The sapphires, in different hues of blue, exhibit a phenomenon known as asterism, which results in light being reflected in the shape of a star, with six or more rays. The star sapphires can be shaped round, oval, pear, and even marquise. 

The streaks of white appear to be emanating from the blue depths of the sapphire and give this stone a mesmeric appeal. The asterism is most clearly visible during the daytime. Not every raw sapphire exhibits asterism; around three in hundred do. And of these, only one displays the attributes that experts at Star Lanka value.

According to sources, sapphires belong to the corundum group of stones and are extremely hard. The blue star sapphire also displays another property known as pleochroism. It takes on different colours according to the angle it is viewed at. Star sapphires are associated with the planet Saturn. Sapphire is the birthstone for September.
