Sapphire - Ceylon Padparadschah


#
An old collector stone back on the market. The 1.83 Padparadschah is a desirable, pinkish orange color. As you can see from the color scan, the gem is slightly more orange than pink. The stone has no brown colors, which you often see in Pads today. The tone is a light 50, which is common for these gems. The gem is MI1 clarity grade. The cutting and finish are typical for a stone cut in Ceylon. The depth is deep at 108% but the brilliancy is super high at 90%. This gem would be beautiful mounted or a great gemstone for a collector searching for a no heat Ceylon pad.
