Vibrant purple Madagascar sapphire.
Unlike Australian sapphires which tend to come in what I think of as 'bush' colours, Madagascar sapphires are famous for their vibrant hues. Usually small, their brilliant colours make them stand out. However this deep purple is rare even amongst this type of stone!
