The Millennium Sapphire is widely considered iconic in the world of art and gems. It was designated as, “The World’s Largest Carved Sapphire” by Guinness World Records in 2001, and is one of the most documented gemstones in modern times. Since its discovery in Madagascar in 1995, this remarkable blue gem has appeared on CNN, BBC, NBC, FOX and numerous other television networks around the world. It has been written about in virtually every major newspaper and has been the subject of articles published in dozens of magazines, including Forbes, WSJ and others. The MS was showcased at an Academy Awards event in 2002 and in Seattle in 2004 as part of the festivities surrounding the launch of Princess Cruise Line’s newest ship, The Sapphire Princess.
MS Token pursues a strategy of partnering with leading digital artists and studios to develop unique NFTs. This strategy allows the company to have an ongoing flow of fresh content drawing inspiration from the original carvings on the sapphire. From carvings of some of history’s most infamous people to landmarks, such as the Pyramids and the historic Sputnik launch, the Millennium Sapphire will be developed into NFTs over time. The content produced will form the basis of the collaborations with world-famous digital artists and their interpretations via NFT animations to bring these pieces to life.
