What is a Star Sapphire? For those not familiar with this unique and beautiful phenomenon, Star Sapphires are those that exhibit a rare quality known as asterism or the star effect. Basically, these blue corundum minerals are included with intersecting needle-like inclusions that reflect white light and cause the appearance of a six-rayed star when viewed from above. There are a number of famous and historic Star Sapphire Gemstones. The largest Star Sapphire is called the Black Star of Queensland, weighing in at 733 carat! Runner up, at 563.4 carat is the Star of India, which is currently on display at the American Museum of Natural History. The Star of Bombay takes the bronze medal for third largest Star Sapphire, weighing a whopping 182 carat. Size is not the only factor in the value of a Star Sapphire, the intensity of the body color, as well as the strength and placement of the star come into play in determining the value of these incredible gemstones.
