Here’s is a brilliant sapphire sphere.

This sapphire sphere is gemmy and has wonderful colors (beautiful blue, reddish/brown, and dark shades of gray). Sapphire is basically any color corundum except red. Red corundum is ruby.

The bright spot is essentially the star but sometimes one can see rays as well.
