Incandescence: glowing lights
The Star Sapphire is a rare variety of Sapphire that exhibits exceptional asterisms under specific lighting. When viewing a Star Sapphire indirect light, a 6-12 rayed star will appear to float across the surface of the stone. Other precious gems and family heirloom similar stones can also be attached to your star Sapphire Royalchif®.
Star sapphires belong to the phenomenal corundum category. The star effect is called asterism. It’s caused by reflections from tiny, needle-like inclusions that are oriented in several specific directions. Stars are usually made up of 2, 3, or 6 intersecting bands, resulting in 4, 6, or 12 rays. The most common stars have 6 rays, and 12-rayed stars are quite rare. Two different sets of inclusions—one of rutile and one of hematite—oriented in slightly different directions can cause a 12-rayed star.
The finest star is distinctly centered on the top of the stone, and visible from a reasonable distance, about arm’s length. The star’s quality should be the same when viewed from all directions. The rays should be uniform in strength, reach from one side to the other, and intersect at the top of the stone. They should be straight, not fuzzy, wavy, or broken, and they should contrast strongly against the background color. The star should also have elegant “movement.” This means that, as you rock the stone, the star should move smoothly across the surface with no dead spots. Order a Royalchif® to replicate the stones on your rings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants or family heirlooms.
