“The Golden Legend”

Exceptionally fine piece of Australian Golden Sapphire

VERY WELL CUT ~ QUITE LARGE ~ SUPERB COLOUR

NO INCLUSIONS ~ NO TREATMENT   (GIA Cert.)

It was 53.00 carats in the rough when found in 1960.

The miner sold it to a local Sapphire buyer in Anakie who cut the stone and in 1970 sold the stone to his business partner, a collector of the finest Aussie Gems.

It remained in his personal Collection until 2015 when due to old age he decided to pass it on to someone “younger” to be the caretaker of this PERFECT GEM.

This is a Collector’s item

(Now residing in my collection…!)

Heated by Mother Nature and Heated by Man…

All Sapphires on this website should be considered as having been FURTHER Heated, by Man, unless otherwise stated.  

However; as most of these stones have actually never been tested, a particular stone could be found to be UnHeated, if submitted to a test. (Contact us)

Any stone tested by a Gemological Lab and found to be “un-Heated” by Man, comes with the Lab’s Certificate.

Aussie Sapphires

The Australian Colours…

Australian Sapphires are mostly found in a Blue colour, but also found in Yellow as well as some Greens.


The Aussie Blue Sapphires tend to be a deep blue.  (See 80 & 99)

The top Australian Golden Yellows are better than what is available from most anywhere else. (See 20)


Green Aussie Sapphires tend to be of a deeper colour and not as light as can be found elsewhere. (See 90)


Blue and Yellow are often blended together producing a colour that is Greenish/Yellow, Yellowish/Green, Bluish/Green or Greenish/Blue. (See 76)


The two colours can also be distinctively separate from each other in the one stone and are described as being Parti-Coloured. (See 120)

 

Black Sapphire which looks like Onyx. (See 96 & 97)


Black Star Sapphire is fairly common. (See 124)


Colours like Pink and Purple are extremely rare and generally very small and/or of poor quality.

“The Golden Boomerang”

(Certified: Natural, Unheated Australian Sapphire)

The rough stone, when found in the late 1960’s, was 155 carats (31 grams).

The rough was a perfect Parti-Coloured stone; one half was pure Yellow and the other half was pure Green.

It was sold to a Thai Gem Merchant who specialised in Aussie rough Sapphires and he sliced it into two pieces; one piece being cut into a spectacular square emerald cut (Octagonal) Green Sapphire of just over 24 carats, the other half yielded the above 19.67 carat Yellow.

Both of the cut stones, however, were bought back from the Thai Gem Merchant in the early 1970’s when the OPEC crisis disrupted the Thai Sapphire industry.

The 24 carat Green Sapphire was some time later sold to a Japanese Gem Merchant.
