To the gemmologist and jewller, sapphire is a stone of superb beauty; to the mineralogist and gem geologist it reminds them of a member of the corundum family which is created in rather rare geological environments; to the miner it poses a challenge to is economic recovery from alluvial deposits; to the historian, it is a gemstone with many fascinating legends, and a long and interesting history, to the chemist this stone, which took nature millions of years to form, recalls problems in its swift synthesis in the laboratory, while to the lapidary, it is a stone form which masterpieces can be cut.
