Mambilla Sapphires

This is the Nigerian, Mambilla Sapphire page!

All of the stones below are natural material from Nigeria.  Currently they are unheated and untreated and range from a medium light blue to a deep, navy or “midnight” blue.  From our experimentation with professional heat treatment they do heat, but very slightly.  Sizes, clarity and shapes vary significantly within the parcels, please view the videos to see the shapes better.

Each parcel has two images taken in direct sunlight and a video, one image is looking down with reflected light coming from underneath in addition and the second image is facing directly at the sky.
