Sapphires are listed on the Mohs hardness scale at 9.0, so they are quite hard gemstones.
Sapphires are typically blue but they also come in other colors such as white, pink, purple, orange, and green. These are known as "fancy sapphires".
The most valuable color of sapphire is a cornflower blue color known as Kashmir Sapphire or Cornflower Blue Sapphire. There is also a color-changing sapphire that is blue in natural light and violet in artificial light (very much like the gemstone alexandrite).
The sapphire is the most precious blue gemstone due to its wonderful color, hardness, durability, and luster.
