Comment: Pink Ceylon sapphire which, in the rough, we judged to be closer to red than pink. However, post-cut, AIGS opted for pink, thus we have not a ruby but a hot-pink sapphire, an equally famous gem from the legendary old Ceylon. Ruby or not, unheated Ceylon corundums in 3*NOS quality and such a strong color-strength are an irreplaceable rarity ('past', 'present' and very much so 'future'). Its individual length/width-ratio would allow a ring size up to eight or nine without appearing  spread too thinly. The not-so-visible inclusion or zoning give the gem its own hallmark (under the lens) but does not disturb the unaided eye. In any case, THIS pink is too strong to allow any other impressions from passing by, which, btw, is true for all colors. Remember physics in grade eight or so? An object appears in a certain color NOT because it is green, red, or you-name-it, but because it has blocked out all other light-waves EXCEPT for the one our eyes pick-up. Still as weird as it was in grade eight, no?
