Do sapphires come in aqua, teal, or a blue-green color? If so, does anyone have any photos?
Thanks : )

yes they come in every color except red because if it were red it would be a ruby. I like the teal ones from Montana. they have some at the natural sapphire company and I''m sure at other sites too.

I love Ebay for some things but I wouldn''t buy a sapphire or any other expensive stone on Ebay.

There are a few teal stones on this page.

Don''t be too quick to knock ebay. The company you gave a link to, sells on ebay!

I love Ebay and buy from there often. I just wouldn't buy an expensive stone on Ebay or expensive anything for that matter.
I'm an Ebay seller too, but not of gemstones.

In fact this is my latest purchase from there.

lovely! not the ''desired'' blue for sapphire by most in the industry and thus most of the population but certainly a pleasing color to my eye. i know that blue sapphire is not over $30k that a good classic blue sapphire would command.

nontypical doesn''t mean that cut and other attributes of a good stone shouldn''t still be met.

i would not buy a stone from ebay that i was planning to have set. i''ve purchased some of the inexpensive ones [under $20] just to have for reference and play with. it was also educational to see bad cut, lots of extinction, etc. it helped to develop my eye.
