Ancient Persians believed Earth rested on a giant blue sapphire that created the night’s sky. Chatham’s Blue Sapphire comes in light, medium, and dark shades. And as luck would have it, the darkest shade of Sapphire is evocative of Halloween’s twilight night.
Frankenstein’s Emerald Green

Unicorn’s Opal Utopia

Their ethereal color play takes you to a faraway land where dreams come true. Many cultures around the world believe opals have supernatural powers, hailing it as a stone that fell from the heavens. Opal’s play-of-color is caused by internal diffraction— small silica spheres in grid-like structures break up light into spectral colors. Sounds like magic!
Pumpkin Shade Padparadscha
Jack-o’-lanterns are basically Halloween’s official logo. The celebrated pumpkin carved with intricate silhouettes reminds us of Dark Padparadscha, sapphires whose color is sometimes called pumpkin orange. Padparadscha comes from the Sanskrit name for lotus blossom. Its orange and red hues reflect from facets in a bewitching way, just as the Jack-o’-lantern’s flames flicker from within.
