THE GEM OF GEMS
• The sapphire is the symbol
of truth and virtue. This royal
stone, called by old writers
the gem of gems, has always
been popular with lovers of
precious stones because of its
beautiful blue color. Ceylon is
famous for its sapphires. They
are also found in Siam, Burma
and in Montana and Idaho.
Australia too has produced
many sapphires of various
qualities, from the superior
grades, to those used in watch
making.
• The opal, the symbol of
hope, was the favorite stone
of Queen Victoria. The play
of colors in this beautiful gem
is caused by tiny fissures cros
sing in all directions and is
due, not to any coloring mat
ter, but to the dispersion of
light.
It is said that when an opal
is first taken from the mine
it is colorless and transparent
but as it is kept in the light,
the colors appear.
A very famous opal which
belonged to the Empress Jose
phine was called "The Burn
ing of Troy" on account of the
tiny tongues of red flame it
showed as if it were on fire.
