Sapphires are on a a short list of gemstones that come in a myriad of colors and shades. One of those hues that almost always signifies an unadulterated stone without heat treatment is within the purple and pink shades.
Blues often fall within a few general color ranges: deep blue, Ceylon blue, dark blue or blue green. But subtlety and the "no two alike" motto are akin to the pinks and purples.
