Description

Lab-created padparadscha is made with corundum and delivers its sought-after pink-orange color at an economical price. These stones perform at the bench just as a natural stone does but, unlike natural padparadscha, is heat-resistant and can be successfully cast or fired in place.

The oval cut is an even, symmetrical shape but elongated. The arrangement of its facets is similar to that of a round brilliant, designed to maximize light and color.
