THE MILLENNIUM SAPPHIRE

The World's Largest Sapphire

 

 

Comparison of Sapphires to the Millennium Sapphire

When looking at the value one must consider not only the gemstones beauty, the fact that it is natural but also the fact that after all of the difficulties of bringing this natural wonder to a finished state, yogos are small. The largest yogo on record is in the Smithsonian and weighs just over 10 cts. To understand the relationship compare this to The Millennium Sapphire, an 61,500 carat gem quality blue sapphire carving, which is the largest finished sapphire on record. It must be acknowledged that this is truly a case of the old saying “good things come in small packages.”
