    Sapphires come in every color!

    Sapphire is a corundum. Without a prefix, sapphire refers to only the blue variety of corundum.

    Reds are called Ruby. Sapphires also come in pink, yellow, orange, green, violet, white (colorless) and every hue in between. Sapphires even come in parti-colors (e.g. green & yellow) and black!

    They may also feature phenomena such as asterism (star effect) or color-change (similar to Alexandrite, but usually from blue to purple/violet).
