Saphite™ a new generation of nanomaterial

Saphite™ is a transparent polycrystalline glassy ceramic material formed through the crystallisation of crafted elements and a base glass, offering improved physical and chemical properties over traditional materials. Saphite has been created to allow the production of an array of colours while maintaining an industry-leading level of clarity and brilliance.


Saphite™ is a multi-component high-temperature composition formed by two main oxides - SiO2 and Al2O3m. These are key oxides in most gemstones. The remaining components of Saphite™ are chosen to achieve the specific desired colour. Regarding the Paraiba Blue colour featured in the Aventi Wraith A15-01, the major additional element is copper, but the additional trace elements and the quantity must remain an Aventi secret.

a unique

Enhanced performance with a unique structure

In contrast to sapphire crystal, Saphite™ is a polycrystalline glass ceramic. This unique structure means that unlike the rigid crystalline structure of sapphire crystal, Saphite™ is formed through the fine uniform dispersion of crystal through a bulk material. This structure provides Saphite™ with improved clarity and brilliance due to lights’ ability to bounce between these suspended fine crystal structures. Further, Saphite™ has better shatter and impact resistance since, unlike sapphire crystal, the material’s strength does not hinge on the tight structure but on the bulk material’s strength.


How is it produced?

Controlling the nucleation and growth of crystals in a base glass material is the key to producing a Glass-ceramic material such as Saphite™. The initial base material is created, passing all the initial inspections it is then ground down to extremely fine dust. This finely ground material is subjected to controlled heat treatment. With the addition of nucleation agents, the base material will crystallize and form the desired polycrystalline structure. The crystallization process is continuously monitored over weeks to ensure the optimal conditions. The final result is a non-porous crystal with unparalleled brilliance and clarity while providing an improved shatter and impact resistance over sapphire crystal.Saphite - the material we always wanted sapphire to be.
