Featured today is a fully natural unheated Ceylon Blue Sapphire of 1.81 carats set in sterling silver as a Saturn talisman ring. The oval shaped gem has an appealing rich royal blue color, fantastic clarity and lustre.
In the sacred texts the blue sapphires are also classified as female/ stri ( light colored) and male/purush (dark hued). The light colored sapphires are also known as water sapphire or jal neel. The water dimension is not just representative of the light color but also of the lustrous quality of the gem.
In Vedic Astrology, natural blue sapphire or neelam gemstone is the gemstone of planet Saturn/ Shanidev and is used to harness his saatvik, transformative energies.
Have a look at the 104-carat stunner called the Stuart sapphire that sits currently in the Imperial State Crown of Britain. The mammoth gem from Srilanka sits in the crown jewels besides the Black Prince Ruby, the Second Star of Africa cut from the famous Cullinan Diamond and St Edward sapphire among lots of others!
