African Blue Saphire
The color of a blue sapphire is more important than its clarity. Sapphires are rarely completely clean and even very expensive stones can be slightly included. Subtle differences in color can make great variations in valuations of fine gemstones. Fine loose gemstones of good color and clarity are always rare and valuable. Highly saturated medium or medium dark blue tones are best, blue sapphires which are too dark or too light are worth considerably less.
While the colour of Emeralds is extremely variable (the phrase ``100 different Emeralds, 100 different colours, holds significant truth), they are, by definition Emerald Green. That is to say a medium or darker green to blue green Beryl, in which the green color is derived from trace quantities of chromium, vanadium, or a combination of both. The most popular and valuable color is a slightly bluish green in a medium dark tone with strong to vivid saturation, epitomised by the Zimbabwean deposit of Sandawana. The term ``Colombian`` Emerald is often used to describe vivid, slightly bluish / yellowish green stones of medium, to medium dark color, no matter what their actual geographic origin. Emeralds of lighter color are sometimes called ``Brazillian or South American`` Emerald, even if they were mined in Africa.
