Orange sapphire is one of gem-quality varieties of mineral corundum. In fact, fancy color sapphire varieties, particularly orange type, are in uptrend now and, obviously, will conquer hearts and minds of jewellery lovers in nearest future. Palette of this corundum variety includes shades of orange color: from intense orangish yellow to reddish. Beautiful saturated colour is its main benefit. Orange sapphire sometimes contains zoning and different inclusions, but clean eye and loupe eye samples are more valued, of course.
Orange color is exceptionally rare for natural corundum. The primary treatment for fancy sapphires is a thermal enhancement of colour and clarity. Natural orange sapphire are sooner an exception than a rule.
In fact, color in the majority of orange sapphire was improved by either simple thermal treatment or heating with beryllium (beryllium diffusion). Beryllium sapphires are presented mainly on the low market, but we don’t select such samples for Gem Lovers catalog.
Cutting is also an important quality factor. On the world marker there are extremely large quantity of stones with non-symmetry cutting and proportions, with window or huge pavilion. We propose you gemstones with nice symmetry and perfect polishing. High hardness of corundum mineral allows to receive a great polishing and fantastic luster. Popular forms of faceted gemstones are oval, cushion, octagon.
