I mentioned in my previous post that the gem species corundum is colorless in its purest form and colorless sapphire is very rare. But colored sapphires are very abundant in many colors…including blue sapphires, pink sapphires, orange sapphires, yellow sapphires, green sapphires and purple sapphires. Remember, there is no red sapphire, because red corundum is actually ruby.
