The classic color of sapphire is blue. However, to date, other colors have been identified, including pink and all its shades. Such stones are called fancy. Pink sapphire, without any doubt, has a special meaning among all other precious stones, since, for any girl, a gift in the form of a ring with a stone of this shade is the most desirable. The aura of such romance is caused by its light, unobtrusive, and at the same time quivering and inviting color.
Description of pink sapphire:
The range of tones - from the color of a tea rose to dense, almost purple. Impurities of chromium and titanium determine tone saturation. In any case, the delicate shade does not drown out the play of light.
Place of mining:
The pink representatives of the sapphire family are rare. For centuries, only Myanmar supplied it, so the gem was fabulously expensive. In the 1990s, giant deposits were discovered in Madagascar, pink gems temporarily fell in price and became more accessible. Sri Lanka and Australia also mine them.
According to authoritative astrologers, this delicate pink mineral is considered an attribute of the goddess of love Venus. This birthstone for September is actively used to create jewelry. Pink sapphire is used for inserts into earrings, rings, fingers and less often into other jewelry.
The properties of the stone are similar to the standard properties of corundum:
hardness - 9 on the Mohs scale;
high degree of transparency of the stone;
great degree of refraction - up to 1.774;
excellent mechanical strength;
This mineral does not react with practically any acids or alkalis, except for the most caustic and at high temperatures. It is durable, shock-resistant and can be cut only with a diamond.
Quality criteria for a pink sapphire:
The value of a sapphire is determined by the characteristics applicable to all precious and half precious stones- the weight of the gem, clarity, cut, presence of defects. Additionally, color is taken into account.
Pink sapphires are formed in the form of a circle, oval, pear, square. This is a classic that maximizes the beauty of the stone.
The color of the mineral looks best in a white frame. White gold or platinum enhances the shine, emphasizing the delicacy of the gem. Silver is almost never used.
It is better to evaluate the stone under a jewelry loupe. Internal inclusions could signal that the gem will split upon impact. The larger they are, the worse. It is easier to inspect the quality without a frame. It often hides the flaws of the gem. However, it is worth remembering that flaws in a natural stone are inevitable.
The deeper, richer the color, the more expensive the gem is. The most fashionable today are purple-pink sapphires. Too dark or light specimens are valued lower, as well as unclear ones. The cost of pastel light pink specimens is influenced by purity and transparency.
