A Sea of Beauty!

Lydia Courteille, sea horse brooch with opals, sapphires, amethysts and diamonds, a masterpiece with such rich and vibrant color/colour!
 

Fun fact: Purple sapphires are an often misunderstood and underappreciated.

They are actually quite extraordinary and far rarer than the more traditionally recognised blue sapphires. Unlike most blue and pink sapphires, which need to be heat treated in order to obtain their best color, purple sapphires very rarely require any heat treatment and are able to naturally change color in different lighting.
