Comment: Here is a wildly colored Padparadscha on the pink, nearly red, side. Extremely intense hue in this usually rather mild colored sapphire variety. Under the lens orange is visibly dispersed into red/pink throughout the stone in layers, patches and silk. Those color zones and colored inclusions, which also become visible through the 6 fold magnifying camera, are, however, hardly visible to the unaided eye. A less rigid grading system than ours would probably classify this stone as "eye clean". All in all a daring intense visible and bold gem.
