It is a great pleasure to introduce gems that will be classed as
Coolamon Blue. Among the many gems we see there are a select few
which have that intangible something that makes them extraordinary.
Often it is obvious that there is something special about a piece of
sapphire even when it is in its rough form. These stones are
selected when the rough is being graded and are sent to specialist
gem cutters to reveal their true beauty.
Be assured that any
gems graded as Coolamon Blue are gems of remarkable
character, colour, and "Fire"
