Unheated Blue Sapphire - Shani - Saturn - Saturday
Unheated Blue Sapphire is the gemstone for Shani/Saturn.
It is very important for Saturn gems to be eye flawless and not heated. The best come from Sri Lanka (Ceylon), Madagascar and Myanmar (Burma). Blue Sapphires from Kashmir are king, but extinction of the mines has driven the price to many multiples of a comparable sapphire from other good locations. The premium price for Kashmiri Blue Sapphires does not yield better results for Jyotish effect.

Color: There is a large range of color from pale, grayish blue to deep pure blue, with slight violet secondary. The best range is a light to medium, fine 'cornflower' blue which is not too dark. Look for 'sweet', pleasing colors.
Clarity: Blue Sapphires should be eye flawless - the more flawless, the better the quality. Minor rutile silk inclusions are acceptable and prove that the gem has not been heat treated. Avoid any but the most minute crystal inclusions, no cracks or cloudy quality. Avoid moderate to significant color zoning. Cleaner is better for Saturn gems.
Shape: Oval, cushion, emerald cut, round.
Size: 2 carats or larger is ideal.
Enhancements: Avoid heated Blue Sapphires of all types. The Garuda Purana states that heated Blue Sapphires are very bad for the wearer.
Avoid: Blue Sapphires that are very dark blue to nearly blackish blue in color.
Bypass the limitations of digital photography: We can arrange for any gemstone to be sent to you to see in person before you purchase it.
