Sapphire crystal is a high-end glass, much more resistant than a classic mineral glass. It is thus virtually unbreakable and scratchproof. Sapphire crystal is obtained from crystallized aluminum oxide at 2050 ° C, it has the same chemical properties as natural sapphire. Thanks to this, sapphire crystal is a very resistant component, it is the second hardest material after diamond (it is for example 7 times harder than tempered steel). Thus the sapphire crystal is a glass which breaks or is very difficult to scratch.
