Blue Sapphire of kashmir-History

Kashmire-Sapphire

Kashmir-Sapphire

Kashmir sapphires rarely appear very high even at high end auctions. It has a history, very long back. In April 2007, 22.66 carat cushion cut Kashmir Sapphire, which was set in a pendant surrounded by diamonds, was sold at a Christies auction. Its cost was about $3,064,000. According to some gemologist, this was a “nice stone”, indicating it was from the finest Sapphire from Kashmir.
Sapphires were first discovered in Kashmir in the year 1880. The story behind Blue Sapphire was that a landslide in the Padar region uncovered the deposits of Blue Sapphire, which was present in the Himalayas at about 4,500 meters.
But, subsequent exploration failed to uncover significant new material. Over the years, several mining efforts were undertaken during the summer months. But the marvels, which came out of the original geological surveys never matched today and the area are mostly under the control of Muslim guerrillas.
This an excellent piece of gem, which is still found in the Indian Himalayas region.
