The Australian teal sapphire draws its unique colour from an imperfect combination of blue and green trace elements, with each teal sapphire flashing distinct pockets of colour in different forms of lighting. This means that in natural lighting, a teal sapphire may shine more green than blue, and vice versa. Whilst the precious gemstone may come in different variations of blue and green, the most valuable of all is an equal split between the two secondary colours (50% blue and 50% green).
A powerful gemstone to have by your side, the Australian teal sapphire combines the strengths of both green and blue sapphires. The calming aura of blue sapphires, and the renewing energy of green sapphires, makes the teal sapphire a strong and sentimental gemstone to be worn or carried with you. The spiritually significant gemstone is also known to bring clarity and integrity to the wearer, enabling serenity and peace of mind.
Australian Sapphires can be found in two distinct regions on the Eastern side of the Australian continent. In NSW they are found within the New England district of Northern NSW near Inverell and Glenn Innes. For Queensland, sapphires are found within the Anakie Gemfields around the villages of Sapphire and Rubyvale, and to the west of Emerald. NSW fields have large open cut mechanical mining whereas the Queensland fields have both open cut and small underground operations.
Combined with support from the Australian government, Australian sapphires are mined under government oversight with strong pro-environmental and worker laws. Once a sapphire deposit has been exhausted, it is rejuvinated to its original state. The final result being the mined area returned to normal.
Therefore, these semi-precious gemstones are an attractive option for the ethical and sustainably focused clientele.

These earrings are absolutely gorgeous and will be treasured for years to come. My mum was speechless when she received them for her 70th birthday. The customer service was amazing answering any questions I had quickly in addition to parcels arriving the day after posting despite being located rurally.
