Inclusions in Natural Sapphire


Dear all
I am attaching a Sapphire picture along with. Can we identify origin by looking at the inclusions .A black tourmaline crystal is visible in it.



The best thing i know of is to use a spectroscope. There is diffrences in the lines depending from where the stone came from.




Hi Pierre, can you explain further, say sapphire from East Africa, Sri Lanka or Australia etc thanks.
