Padparadscha is a delicate light to medium toned pink-orange to orange-pink hue corundum, originally found in Sri Lanka,but also found in deposits in Vietnam and parts of East Africa. Padparadscha sapphires are rare; the rarest of all is the totally natural variety, with no sign of artificial treatment.

The name is derived from the Sanskrit “padma ranga” (padma = lotus; ranga = color), a color akin to the lotus flower (Nelumbo nucifera).

Natural padparadscha sapphires often draw higher prices than many of even the finest blue sapphires.
