Clarity is just as important as color when it comes to sapphires. Most natural untreated sapphires have some inclusions, but the number and type of inclusions can impact the stone’s look. When evaluating sapphires, the size, location and type of inclusions are considered. The lower the sapphire’s clarity grade is, the more eye-visible inclusions it has.
