Sapphires from Greece are extremely rare and have only been seen as masses until recently, when I acquired a large specimen from an old collection, with sapphire crystals inside a plumasite matrix. After lots of hours of preparation we managed to retrieve a small number of specimens. These are unique and we have never seen or heard of something similar from Greece before. This is a great example, quite rich and well sized!
