Its occurrence is in multitudes of colors that are not known to many people. Apart from these colors, the red sapphire is normally referred to as ruby. Unfortunately the other colors are rare than the blue sapphire. Since the red one as we have seen refers to ruby, hence then the word sapphire refers to sapphire. Sounds confusing?
