The Yogo Sapphire gets its name from the beautiful Mountain Valley where these sapphires are found. Native Americans named this valley “Yogo” which means blue sky. The Yogo Sapphires are plucked from the grasp of the earth by seasoned miner Mike Roberts and his trusty workers. These sapphire crystals have been held captive in the hard Montana rock for 48.7 million years awaiting discovery.
While other gem quality sapphires must be treated to enhance their color—Yogo Sapphires require no such treatment as these world-class sapphires are coveted for their beautiful, natural, cornflower colorations. The colorations of Yogo Sapphire naturally parallel the blue through magenta hues of the Cornflower—better known as bachelor’s buttons. Thus the natural cornflower blue of Yogo Sapphire is a “world-class blue” against which all other gem class sapphires attempt to compare through manmade treatments such as heat treating, radiation, etc.
