White Sapphires: An Inexpensive Alternitive

White sapphires are sapphires that are completely colorless. These particular sapphires can be made in two ways. The first way is to synthetically grow the stones in a controlled environment. The second way is to take grey or semi-yellow sapphires and put them through a heating or chemical process which removes the remaining color from the stone, thereby leaving a white sapphire. These man-made white sapphires are inexpensive, but can also be of very high quality due to the controlled environment they are grown in. White sapphires can be cut much in the same way as diamonds, and are extremely durable. These qualities make them a good alternative over diamonds.
