Padparadscha is a rare color variety of the mineral corundum (Al2O3). The color of padparadscha sapphire is from both iron and chromium impurities substituting for occasional aluminum ions in the corundum crystal structure.

The term padparadscha came originally from the ancient sanskrit word "padmaraga" which was the name used for the pinkish-orange to orangy-pink color of the lotus flower in Ceylon (Sri Lanka).

Certified natural color padparadscha sapphires are extremely rare and very highly prized.

We have genuine sapphire gemstones available in all of the naturally occuring colors of sapphire. Follow the links below to see more genuine sapphire gemstones.
