Corundum is a crystalline form of aluminium oxide typically containing traces of iron, titanium, vanadium, chromium or magnesium. It is a rock-forming mineral. It can occur in different shades depending on what trace elements are present, though blue is the most well known.
Gem quality blue Corundum is called Sapphire. The name Sapphire is derived from the Latin “saphirus” and the Greek “sapheiros”, both of which mean blue. Blue Sapphire gets its colour from the inclusion of trace amounts of Titanium.
