Most people don't realize that ruby and sapphire are both gems of the mineral corundum. Both of these gems have the same chemical composition and the same mineral structure. Trace amounts of impurities determine if a gem corundum will be a brilliant red ruby or a beautiful blue sapphire. It is surprising that "impurities" can produce such wonderful results!
Red and blue are just two of the many colors found in gem corundums. Trace amounts of other elements can produce brilliant yellow, orange, green, and purple gems. Red corundums are known as "rubies," blue corundums are known as "sapphires".
Trace amounts of iron and titanium can develop a blue color in corundum. Blue corundums are known as "sapphires." The name "sapphire" is used for corundums that range from light blue to dark blue in color. The blue can range from a violet-like blue to a greenish blue. Stones in the middle of this range, with a rich blue color, are the most desirable.
