Blue Diamond (superior)
Violet Sapphire is a Homeworld Gem and a follower of Blue Diamond.
Violet Sapphire has thistle skin and blue-violet hair with bangs that cover her face, kept back in a ponytail. She has one violet colored eye hidden behind her bangs, no nose, and plump lips. She is somewhat short compared to most gems, standing at 3 feet. Her outfit consist of a dark violet-blue, layered dress with a diamond shaped hole on her navel to reveal her gemstone, violet-indigo sleeves, and violet-indigo gloves.
Violet Sapphire is a very calm, collected, secluded gem. She rarely appears in front of others unless she's being escorted or reporting to her diamond. She is quite gentle and soft spoken, as well as incredibly delicate. She has a fondness for plant life and loves to collect new plants for her garden.
Violet Sapphire was created on Kepler thousands of years ago, a planet colonized by Blue Diamond. It was here that she became fascinated with plant life and decided that she'd like to start a garden of her own. She currently maintains a garden on Homeworld called "Galaxy Gardens" where she collects different species of planet life from across the galaxy.

- In times of antiquity and the Middle Ages, the term sapphire actually referred to lapis lazuli, but in the early nineteenth century, the description and definition of sapphire was changed to the corundum variety we know today.
- Sapphire is typically very durable, and considered to be one of the hardest materials on earth.
- It is the second hardest substance on earth after diamond, rating 9 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.
- Because of the remarkable hardness of sapphires – 9 on the Mohs scale (the third hardest mineral, after diamond at 10 and moissanite at 9.5) – and of aluminium oxide in general, sapphires are used in some non-ornamental applications.
- Sapphire is a member of the corundum family and is closely related to ruby; the red to pink-red gem-quality variety of corundum.
- Most corundum is opaque to translucent and heavily included, suitable only for industrial use, including the production of abrasives used for sandpaper and machining of metal, plastics and wood.
- Corundum itself is not a very rare mineral, but gem quality corundum is extremely rare.
- Since ruby is a member of the corundum group, it is closely related to sapphire and thus shares some properties, such as hardness, composition and double refraction, with sapphire.
- While blue is the most traditional and classic color for sapphire, sapphire is actually found in a variety of different colors. Today, all colors of gem quality corundum are known as sapphire, with exception to red corundum, which is classified as ruby.
- Sapphire colors are best viewed under natural daylight. In artificial or incandescent light, sapphire colors can appear darker and inky black-blue.
- Trace amounts of elements such as iron, titanium, chromium, copper, or magnesium can give corundum respectively blue, yellow, purple, orange, or green color.
- Colored sapphire (other than blue) is often referred to as fancy sapphire, and fancy sapphire is typically traded using color-specific names, such as yellow sapphire, green sapphire or purple sapphire.
