Ankarres sapphires were a type of gemstone known for their blue hue.[1] Around 231 BBY,[2] while being shown around the grounds of the Valo Republic Fair by Coordinator Samera Ra-oon, Jedi Master Elzar Mann compared the shade of the sky of the planet Valo on a summer day to an Ankarres sapphire.[1]
