it's a big blue pool, with the color of the outer area is lighter blue than the inner one, the water is clear, the pool looks beautiful, and has some mist on top of it, it's located in the Biscuit basin, easily accessible.

Sapphire Pool is a hot spring in Biscuit Basin. It has a beautiful blue colour and crystal clear water at 200 deg F/93 deg C. It's not as crowded as the Grand Prismatic Spring.

When you see this pool you will understand why it is called sapphire. The colours are amazing. How is it possible to be crystal clear sky blue. Truly crystal clear blue. When the steam passes you get a glimpse of how amazing the colour is....More
