Hi Milo
I was a throw screener for a lot of years and I can assure you 1/8" is too small .
about an inch for the top screen and 5mm for the bottom one .
you'll still get your small sapphires , but most importantly you'll get rid of the dirt and clay that muddies the wash water .
Cheers

Hello Milo, the following have had the mesh you are after. Greensteel in Emerald. Gemfields Hardware and Laubli Engineering, Rubyvale. And yes, 1/8" for the bottom screen is too small. All the best for the sapphires.
