Australian Sapphire Gemstone

Unearthed in New South Wales and Queensland, Australian Sapphires have a tendency to be more of a greenish blue than a pure blue when extracted from the ground. With modern heat treatment techniques, Australian Sapphires are easily transformed into a more pure blue and then sometimes they are miss-sold by ill-informed or unscrupulous dealers as Ceylon Sapphires.
