While the specific details are unknown, two artisans, Mister Garnaal Arnskeg and Glitter Advisor Kimallus, were credited with the discovery of the rainbow sapphire, however, both refuse to comment on where in Ilithi the gems were found. Rumors speculate that both parties have been quietly feuding for many years, and it is assumed that the precious rainbow sapphire is just one more reason for their continued denial of the other's existence.
Every rainbow sapphire exhibits a dark blue hue that, when faceted, subtly flows into two different colors. If left uncut, the sapphire's colors are muddied and appear dull and discolored. The known colors are vibrant shades of: red, orange, yellow, green, violet and pink.
Some possible color combinations: blue/red/yellow, blue/yellow/green, blue/red/orange, blue/pink/orange, blue/red/pink, blue/green/violet, blue/violet/yellow, blue/pink/violet.
Example faceted: a square-cut rainbow sapphire / The step-cut jewel displays a trine of intense, highly saturated colors. Shaded on the diagonal, the lustrous sapphire's dark blue hue gradually blends into a rich shade of medium green that then flows into a bright canary yellow.
Example unfaceted: a cabochon rainbow sapphire / Unfaceted, the dome-shaped jewel displays patches of murky colors. Irregular sections of dull yellowish-green and reddish-orange break up the gem's dark blue, nearly black hue.
