Multi-coloured sapphires, also known as fancy sapphires, are a type of corundum mineral that comes in a variety of colours. The different colours of sapphires are caused by trace elements in the mineral’s crystal lattice. For example, blue sapphires get their colour from the presence of iron and titanium, while pink sapphires contain chromium, and yellow sapphires contain iron.
In many cultures, sapphires have been associated with a variety of mythological and spiritual meanings. In ancient Greece and Rome, sapphires were associated with the god Apollo, who was said to have worn a sapphire as a symbol of his power and wisdom. During the Middle Ages, sapphires were believed to have healing powers and were often used to treat eye infections and other ailments.
