Coefficient of thermal expansion
(5.0–6.6)×10−6/K relative permittivity at 20 °C ε = 8.9–11.1 (anisotropic) SAPPHIRE is a gemstone , a variety of the mineral corundum , an aluminium oxide (α-Al 2O 3). It is typically blue in color, but natural "fancy" sapphires also occur in yellow, purple, orange, and green colors; "parti sapphires" show two or more colors. The only color which sapphire cannot be is red – as red colored corundum is called ruby , another corundum variety. Pink colored corundum may be either classified as ruby or sapphire depending on locale. This variety in color is due to trace amounts of elements such as iron , titanium , chromium , copper , or magnesium . Commonly, natural sapphires are cut and polished into gemstones and worn in jewelry . They also may be created synthetically in laboratories for industrial or decorative purposes in large crystal boules

Amphiprion Akindynos
AMPHIPRION AKINDYNOS, the Barrier Reef anemonefish is a species of anemonefish that is principally found in the Great Barrier Reef
Great Barrier Reef
of Australia
Australia
, but also in nearby locations in the Western Pacific . The species name 'akindynos' is Greek, meaning 'safe' or 'without danger' in reference to the safety afforded amongst the tentacles of its host anemone. Like all anemonefishes it forms a symbiotic mutualism with sea anemones and is unaffected by the stinging tentacles of the host anemone. It is a sequential hermaphrodite with a strict sized based dominance hierarchy : the female is largest, the breeding male is second largest, and the male non-breeders get progressively smaller as the hierarchy descends. They exhibit protandry , meaning the breeding male will change to female if the sole breeding female dies, with the largest non-breeder becomes the breeding male. The fish's natural diet includes zooplankton
