|Comments||Colorless or white Sapphire or colorless corundum is a premium gem. For one thing, getting a gem grade, that too a jyotish gem grade white sapphire is an uphill task.
Featured today is a lovely Srilankan Natural White Sapphire of 2.18 carats set in white gold as a pendant. This oval white sapphire has been faceted beautifully and allows for brilliance and sparkle to display its magic.
White sapphire is characteristically different from Diamond, where diamond is mostly carbon but white sapphire is corundum i.e. aluminum oxide. Diamond has a higher refractive index and stronger dispersion compared to white sapphire. And these facts give the diamond its typical brilliance and fire.
Although, this makes the diamond perform better in the looks department, the white sapphire does well as a jyotish gem due to this very fact – it is easier to look out for clarity characteristics in white sapphire than diamonds. While the diamond measures 10 on the Moh’s Scale as the hardest gem, sapphire trails it measuring a 9.
White Sapphire is the gemstone for Venus/ Shukra as per vedic astrology and is known to show great benefits, according to Vedic Astrology. It can be greatly helpful in attainment of personal as well as material goals such as wealth, charm and charisma, harmony in personal relationships to name a few.
