Pure corundum is extremely rare in nature and is colourless. Gem corundum of any colour is referred to as sapphire. Blue corundum is simply called sapphire. There are two other colour varieties of corundum that have specific names, the pinkish-red to red ruby and the orangish-pink padparadscha. The colour of the well known blue sapphire is due to Fe2+ and Ti4+ impurities. Iron in the Fe3+ state causes the colour in some yellow sapphires, while other yellow sapphires owe their colour to irradiation induced 'colour centres'. Other colour influencing impurities in sapphires are vanadium, cobalt and nickel. Sapphire form as bipyramidal, prismatic, tabular, or rhombohedral crystals. The streak is white and it is transparent to translucent, with a vitreous to adamantine lustre. Group OXIDES, Composition Al2O3, Hardness 9.0, Crystal structure TRIGONAL.
