A cluster of towns in Central Queensland, Australia, is the gateway to the world’s biggest deposits of sapphires. With our mines in the area, FURA is the world’s single largest producer of Sapphires. Our blue, green, teal and ‘parti’ or multi-hued sapphires are gaining recognition in the fashion and luxury world for their natural beauty and exotic appeal. FURA is building a global market with state-of-the-art grading system for these magnificent gems.
Queensland sapphires even feature in the crown jewels of European monarchs. In the late 20th century, Australia accounted for nine-tenths of global sapphire supplies. FURA is actively working on marketing of Australian Sapphires with an intent to regain their lost glory on the global platform.
