Just for clarification, “Kaka


Just for clarification, “Kaka Neeli” is not a black shade of blue sapphire. It is actually a natural semi-precious blue gemstone known as Iolite. However, people in trade wrongly sell “Kaka Neeli” as kyanite which is another natural semi-precious blue gemstone. And mostly, “Kaka Neeli” is sold as real blue sapphire but actually it is a cost-effective alternative of blue sapphire.

I have written a post on how to identify blue sapphire at http://www.gemstonebuzz.com/forum/identification/455/how-to-identify-neelam-blue-sapphire#comment-113 (please go through it if you want to know).

Whatever gemstone you buy and from whom-ever you buy, always get it ccertified from a reputed gemological lab. It hardly costs around Rs. 1,000 to 1,500 to get it certified which is beneficial in the long run and for one’s statisfaction.
