Star sapphire take awhile to chip (The white/Teal speckled spots). The male in the pic is 4 years old. The males I usually sell are around 1 year old and have no chips or just a handful. You have to be patient and let them mature (which they all mature at different speeds). The older they are, the more chips they will get. We DO NOT guarantee males under 6" will have chips when you receive them.
