Asterism is a phenomenon that shows a star floating across the surface of a gem. It is only present in cabochon cut gemstones, most commonly in sapphires and rubies, although it can also occur with quartz, alexandrite, spinel, diopside, and beryl. It occurs when an experienced gem cutter selects a piece of rough with tiny needle like inclusions which reflect light onto the surface of the stone from within and cuts the gem in cabochon to create the best star effect possible.
