Top 5 Fine Blue Gemstones / The Favorites’ Selection by Yavorskyy
Just like the sky or the ocean, the Blue of natural Gemstones ranges in a wide palette from pale lagoon to intense ultramarine. Stones of these colors don’t seem to be a rarity for Instagram jewelry shoppers, and that’s alarming.
An amateur can hardly tell a difference between the sky-blue appeal of Aquamarine and Topaz, but will be surprised at the price inequality.
Same with the relatively new Tanzanite and the centuries-old Blue Sapphire.
That’s why we selected Top 5 Blue Gemstones falling into the category of Fine Gems, worth a connoisseur’s investment, and at least your attention.
Wonder why your favorite Blue Gem is not in this selection? Find the explanation below.
Blue Topaz, Tanzanite and Blue Zircon are out of our radar as they’re usually treated on the market (exception: natural untreated specimens, very rare and valuable).
Blue Diamond is simply out of our price range. And yours, most likely.
Rare gems such as Jeremejevite or Grandidierite are out of the jewelry market.
Same with beautiful but not quite durable stones like Apatite, Kyanite or Fluorite.
Finally, non-faceted stones like Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise, Blue Chalcedony, Chrysocolla, Azurite, Labradorite etc. are simply out of our Fine Gem specification, no matter how much we love them all.
