Is there a sapphire with a similar bright neon blue as a fine cobalt spinel from Vietnam? Would it be Kashmir or a different variety? I’m looking for a bright blue stone (no hauyne, too soft) and I love the neon blue of cobalt spinel and can’t seem to find a comparable color in sapphire. Sapphires are a newer endeavor to me (I mostly live in a world of spinels and tourmaline) so I‘m less familiar with sapphire. Any sapphire lovers out there with ideas and suggestions? Do you think the main attraction to bright cobalt spinel is more associated with it‘s rarity? Thanks all for the input — I’d love to hear some other opinions on this.
