COLORATION

 

Traditionally, most people associate sapphires with the a rich, royal blue color.  But sapphires can be found across the entire spectrum of colors, with the exception of red.  That color of gem is reserved for a cousin of the sapphire, or perhaps more aptly in this case, the red-headed stepchild of this particular gemological family and birthstone for July: the ruby.

Amethysts

Emeralds

Rubies

Diamonds
