Some countries in West Africa have blue sapphire deposits. Most of the West African blue sapphires are usually heated to improve their color. Top sapphire colors like «Cornflower Blue» (silky bright blue color) and «Royal Blue» (saturated dark blue color) can be found in Madagascar. These colors may be marked also in GRS laboratory certificates. The price of blue sapphire can be measured in thousands of dollars per carat, depending on its weight, color, clarity. Faceted sapphires from Tanzania, Kenya and Nigeria rarely exceed 3 carats. The larger the natural sapphire, the more it will cost per carat. The price of good quality sapphires without heat treatment can be 1.5-3 times more than for same quality heated sapphires. The largest sapphire mining region in Tanzania is Songea. Kenya has blue sapphire mines in Garba Tula and Turkana. In Nigeria corundum deposits are located in Borno, Kaduna, Taraba and Bauchi states.
