Why buy a Sapphire in Nosy Be - Madagascar rather than Europe?
Most of the classic sapphires sold in Europe are heat-treated to improve color and sometimes transparency. Practiced since antiquity by Sri Lankans, the operation traditionally consisted of heating the stone to a temperature exceeding a thousand degrees, and this for about ten hours in a blown overheated fireplace.
This "cooking" as practiced today in Sri Lanka and especially in Thailand consists of a complex treatment in controlled atmosphere and sometimes exceeding 1700 °. This treatment, authorized and legal, makes "commercial" stones that would otherwise not have the transparency required to be cut. As for the star sapphire, the heating with the blowtorch makes simply disappear its star!
The majority of sapphires sold on the local market have undergone no treatment other than faceting and polishing, so you have a sapphire of the highest quality.
