Aussie Sapphire is a fully Australian owned online and mail order store based in Glen Innes, NSW Australia. This website is owned and operated by AF and LA Lane (ABN 834 731 562 254) trading as Aussie Sapphire. It is a family run enterprise owned by Andrew and Leah Lane with the help of our two young sons Patrick and Angus and our other behind the scene helpers Malcolm, Noeline, Peter (warehouse, packing, deliveries ) and Susan (book keeping).
Established in 1997, Aussie Sapphire started out as an online outlet for Sapphire and other gems from our Reddestone Creek Mine located on our Property. Early in our shop life we started adding Lapidary products - this grew quickly to become the main focus of the online shop.

Hi Andrew and Leah,
This is the stone I cut from the 13+ct rough I bid on last month. I hit a fracture and that cut the yield to 2.56 cts but a larger stone would have also been darker, so I'm happy with the results. The stone is 7.9 mm and better than
eyeclean. I used a pavilion angle of 41 degrees and crown
angle of 36.
