Madagascar pink sapphire is a dazzling and vibrant precious gemstone known for its exquisite color. While all sapphires are beautiful, pink sapphires are incredibly sought after due to their lovely blushing hues.
Madagascar Pink Sapphire can range in color, from a delicate warm pink to a violet-tinged pink. Pink sapphires are frequently used in engagement rings because their light color has exceptional brilliance, luster and fire, and because sapphires are associated with faithfulness and sincerity. Sapphire, along with her sister gemstone ruby, belongs to the corundum group of gemstones, considered one of the hardest minerals on Earth. The term corundum is thought to originate from the Indian "kauruntaka" or the Sanskrit "kuruvinda." However, the name sapphire is from the Latin "sapphirus" meaning blue, the color most frequently associated with this gemstone. According to the world-renowned color experts at Pantone, pink will be an extremely popular color palette for 2014, making this precious stone all the more fashionable. However, it is important to note that difficult mining conditions have increased pink sapphire’s rarity.
While the traditional sources for pink sapphire have been Sri Lanka or Myanmar (Burma), in recent years new sources of fine pink sapphire were discovered in Africa, with the richest deposits in Madagascar and Tanzania. We obtain beautiful and fine-quality pink sapphire from mines in Madagascar.
