It is imperative to buy an astrologically potent gemstone from a certified dealer to ensure a good quality Neelam that is administered rightly to the wearer. Dull, lusterless, or flawless but artificially lab-grown gemstones can be cheaper but do not provide the same benefits as an authentically sourced gem.

The price for the Ceylon Blue Sapphire can depend upon various factors:

  • Weight: The price for the Ceylon Blue Sapphire weighs highly upon its carats or rattis.
  • Treatment: Ceylon Blue Sapphires are usually natural and with industry-accepted treatment, this makes them a better Astrological Gemstone with high-value ornament choice. They are selectively passed through natural processes to give them the stunning look they are popular for.

Beware glass-filled Blue Sapphires. They may look shiny but they circumvent the divine power of the gemstone, rendering them weakened or useless.

  • Quality: The common man is often cheated when it comes to Ceylon Blue Sapphires. They fall for the beryllium-treated counterparts that exude a distinct Bluish color.

The best-quality Vedic gemstones are naturally sourced with minimum treatment and a good cut. There is advanced Vedic science to understanding the best cut for the wearer.

Natural, adequately clear, well-cut Ceyloni Neelam that is neither diffused nor enhanced is the best perfect one to choose.

  • Source: Lab-grown gemstones are cheaper than mined stones. The Ceylon Blue Sapphire originates from Sri Lanka and its costs vary depending on international laws.

Natural Ceylon Blue Sapphire gemstones are priced between the range of Rs.3500 per carat to Rs.50,000+ per carat, depending upon the above factors.

Astrological benefits of the gemstone are dependent mainly upon the intensity of the clarity, the cut, and the color of the gemstone.

When purchasing a Ceylon Blue Sapphire gemstone, always adhere to the 3 C’s rule of thumb. This universal rule to decide the quality of any gemstone will help you discern the perfect Vedic gemstone from the low-quality substitutes.

The 3 C’s of Quality are: Cut, Color, and Clarity


Often misunderstood to be the shape of the gemstone, cut generally refers to the sides on the surface of the gemstone. The outer shape doesn’t matter as much as the technique of the various cuts placed on the gemstones so that it may allow the light to pass and reflect in a way that is characteristic of every cut. An emerald cut will reflect light differently than a princess cut or cushion cut.

The main aim of a cut is to enhance the brightness of a gem and make it shine to the fullest.


The Ceylon Blue Sapphire comes in various shades of Blue. It ranges from sky blue to deep royal blue along with cornflower hues, although the preferred shade is a medium vibrant canary shade or a light champagne color.

The color that is highly recommended from a Vedic astrological point of view is the deep golden yellow color without any traces of orange in it.


The clarity of any gemstone depends on how clearly one can see through it. Hazy gemstones indicate impurities in the stone. Although, only man-made synthetic gemstones can be flawless. Natural gemstones will always contain traces of imperfection.

Ceylon Blue Sapphire gemstones are considered a good choice as they are almost completely clear to the naked eye i.e. ‘eye-clean'. They cannot be free from inclusions and crystal or feathers are the ones typically found in natural Sri Lankan Blue Sapphires.

The Neelam falls under the corundum mineral family of gemstones. Gemstones under this category come in various splendid colors such as water blue, vivid blue, deep blue, purplish-blue and president blue. The variation in these colors can be attributed to the presence of elements such as iron, titanium, chromium, copper, or magnesium found in gemstones.

Ceylon Blue Sapphire

It is composed of Aluminum Oxide. The element that gives this gemstone its characteristic blue tinge is trace amounts of iron and titanium. The higher the content of iron and titanium, the deeper the hue and color.

It is important to authenticate and verify the specifications of the gemstone you are looking to purchase. In the case of Ceylon Blue Sapphires, be careful about selecting irradiated gemstones only. Blue sapphires that are enhanced through low-level radiation lose their color over time and fade away due to heat and exposure.
