SAPPHIRE - Kimmirut, Baffin Island, Nunavut
Until recently, high-quality transparent sapphire had never been found in Canada.  In 2002, gemmy blue sapphire was discovered in the Canadian Arctic, near the hamlet of Kimmirut on the south coast of Baffin Island, Nunavut.  This is certainly one of the most exciting gem finds ever made in Canada.  The mostly small gemstones offered for sale on this page come from True North Gem's sapphire prospect on Baffin Island.  I am very excited about being able to offer these gemstones for sale. You can learn more about this occurrence here.
