Sapphire is in the same family of gemstones as Rubies; it is a variety of Corundum and therefore is very hard, ranking 9.0 on the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness. Only the Diamond and Moissanite are harder. Sapphires are found in many of the same regions as rubies, such as Eastern Australia, Montana, United States, Eastern Africa and China. Sapphires are available in a variety of shades and colors, however are more commonly known for their blue color. Other colors include Orange, Brown, Pink, even colorless (which look very much like diamonds). Pink Sapphires have been known to sell for higher prices, due to their rarity and popularity amongst women, than their most precious & rare blue sapphire equivalents!
