This is one of three stars we recently purchased from a mine in the Andhra Pradesh area of India. A couple of things really caught my eye when I saw this star sapphire

1. First the color, in my mind its kind of a cross between a blue star from Burma and A black star from Thailand, it has a raw earthieness to it, a real rugged masculine look

 

All gemstones in our inventory and our jewelry are Natural mined gemstones, None are lab created,lab grown,man made, or synthetics.
