Within the sapphire group there is a color distinction between blue sapphire (known in the trade simply as sapphire) and all other colors (except red), including pink, yellow, green, violet and white. All colors of sapphire, other than blue, are referred to as 'fancy sapphire'. Yellow sapphire can be found in a range of hues, from pale yellow or lemon, to honey and yellow-orange. Most natural yellow sapphire is quite light in color, and the brighter and more saturated colors are often achieved through treatment. Yellow sapphire can be found in several countries, including Sri Lanka (Ceylon), Thailand, Cambodia, Madagascar and Myanmar (Burma).
Among the fancy sapphires, yellow sapphire has become especially popular for use as an affordable alternative to expensive canary diamond. Another reason for the popularity and high demand for yellow sapphire is much owed to its important role in Vedic astrology, where it is often referred to as Pukhraj sapphire. Pukhraj sapphire is believed to bring about the fulfillment of ambition for its owner. Yellow sapphire is also thought to attract wealth and bring prosperity to those who wear the special, fancy sapphire. In addition, many recommend that people born under the signs of Sagittarius or Pisces should always wear yellow sapphire.
