The color in th is stone is mesmerizing; They are little color changing miracles. They were made from glass that has gold mixed into it. The colors range from a mauve-y, chocolatey mocha to an icy. Sometimes intense blue, depending on the quality of the light.
I've included a variety of photos, but they really do not do justice to this little beauty. INFO I GOT OFF THE INTERNET: Saphiret is an early glass used in jewelry making and was made during the late 1800s to mid 1900s. It was made in various countries, including Czechoslovakia and Germany during the mid 19th century. The glass was made by adding real gold to sapphire colored molten glass.This created an amazing color combination. The base color ranged from a mocha or pinkish brown to a brick red color, but the amazing part is when light strikes the stone, the glass reflects the light as a soft blue glow At the turn of the century when gold increased in value, it was not cost effective to continue production of the stone, so eventually the production of saphiret glass was halted (which made it rare) If you've ever seen the stone, you won't forget what it looks like. It is just breath taking and it will tempt you into becoming a collector.
One thing is for sure, there are a lot more saphiret collectors than there is saphiret. So the pieces usually bring a premium price.If you have ever tried to photograph saphiret then you know how difficult it can be. ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION OR GIVE AS A GIFT!
