Padparadscha sapphire is a pink-orange corundum, with a low to medium saturation and light tone, originally being mined in Sri Lanka, but also found in deposits in Vietnam and Africa; Padparadscha sapphires are rare. The name derives from the Sinhalese word for lotus blossom. The rarest of all padparadschas is the totally natural variety, with no sign of treatment.

A pink chalcedony shows off its beauty. Chalcedonies include many types of cryptocrystalline quartz gems and feature a number of different colors. Geologists can tell a chalcedony from the arrangement and structure of its crystals.
