Why Padparadscha Sapphires are expensive?

The simple answere is its rarity. Good quality padparadscha gemstones are even rare.

Padparadscha sapphires are mainly found in Ceylon (Sri Lanka). Due to the high demand, gemstones mined are sold off very quickly and moved out of the market.

Unheated padparadscha sapphires are extreamly rare and expensive than heat treated padparadscha.

What makes padparadscha different from other sapphires?

Historically, this gemstones was identified based on its colours, a mix of pink and orange, which resemble the colour of the lotus flower. When padparadscha sapphires traded in places where the lotus flowers are not widely known, traders started to compare the colour with the colour of fresh salmon fish.

This unique colour is a result of a certain chemical composition in the sapphire crystals.

Now, the gemmological laboratories are able to measure the presence of these elements and also able to quantify the percentages of those. This measurements are used to identify the padparadscha sapphires.

This gives a deterministic scientific way of identifying padparadscha sapphires. However, when additional elements present in the gemstone, the padparadscha sapphires can have other colour shades as well.
