From the corundum, we get sapphires and rubies. Sapphire is a word used for all the varieties of corundum gems, except for the ruby.

Sapphires come in varieties of corundum in the colors of yellow, green, orange, pink, purple and of course, blue. When cut as a cabochon, you might see a six-pointed star known as the star sapphire.
