Teal Sapphire, also referred to as Blue-Green Sapphire, belongs to the Corundum mineral family. The vivid blend of two colors makes Teal Sapphire engagement rings a popular jewelry item.
Teal Sapphire has set a new trend in the market due to its peculiar and enchanting hue. It is also referred to as Peacock Sapphire and is one of the most charming Blue-Green color variants of Montana Sapphires.
What makes Teal Sapphires so attractive is that they have a vibrant and distinguishable color very different from traditional deep blue sapphires. These were first discovered in Montana in 1865 but later only did people realize the worth of these beautiful gemstones. Due to sheer hardness, Teal Sapphires are suitable for daily wear as they hold up long term and are comparatively more resistant to scratching and chipping than softer gemstones. The dazzling gem oozes mystery with its uniquely deep and light tones. The presence of iron (FE) is what gives it a beautiful hue.

Contrary to what you might expect, teal sapphires cost rather less than your classic blue and cornflower sapphire. Cut, clarity, treatments, color, and carat weight decide the worth of a Teal Sapphire.
- The gemstone should be just bright enough and vividly saturated so that it doesn’t look dull or too bright. However, quality begins to drop if the tone and saturation of the color matrix are compromised.
- Considering the natural structure, inclusions are usually acceptable in sapphires. Visible natural features in Teal sapphire usually exist as fine silk (needles), fingerprints, and color bands. Natural blue sapphires without visible inclusions are rarely found and thus super expensive. However, it is always advisable to buy certified blue sapphire whether online or from reputed dealers to ensure a fair price.
- Teal blue sapphires above a few carats are extremely rare as color and clarity are highly unlikely to co-exist on the same scale. So good quality Teal Sapphires above 2 carats can be highly expensive.
- When buying blue-green sapphires online, be sure to check what type of treatment the gemstone has undergone. Most often, Teal Sapphires are “heat treated” to enrich the gemstone’s natural color. These sapphires create the best look for jewelry. Untreated sapphires are often gray-blue, while heat treatment helps produce the signature blue-green color resembling that of a peacock or a mermaid
