All Metal Urges  individual green sapphire gems can be identified and traced back to its country of origin.


A most desirable feature

Sapphire belongs to the corundum aluminum oxide mineral group. In its purest form, corundum is colourless, however the majority of these gems  contain chemical impurities known as trace elements.

These ‘impurities’ are highly desirable and without them sapphires would lack such an incredible and diverse range of colours. Green sapphires are created specifically from the presence of iron trace elements.
