Yellow Sapphire Gemstones (Pushparaga or Pushyarag)


A Yellow Sapphire Gemstones is a naturally occurring Gemstone, consisting basically of corundum (aluminium oxide), and tinged with slight traces of iron – the metal which leads to its beautiful yellow hue. Found usually in igneous rocks and in alluvial deposits, this amazing stone has long held the admiration and wonder of all kinds of people – from travellers and explorers to kings and queens. Carving and cutting of the natural stone creates the brilliantly lit and cut gemstone that is one of the most valued of all precious stones. A yellow sapphire has considerable sparkle and might display different colours when viewed from different angles. Sapphires can be heat treated, diffused with beryllium or irradiated to preserve and enhance their yellow brilliance – but the naturally occurring sapphires are still the most valued.

Called pushparaga in Sinhalese and Sanskrit, and usually known in India as Pukhraj, the colour of the best yellow sapphire Gemstones has been considered to be the perfect amalgam of the yellow of a sunset evening and the blue tinge of a lotus flower. Sapphires are known for their extreme hardness – next only to diamond – and are today used for a wide range of industrial applications; including lasers, solid-state electronic devices and electronic wristwatches. But of course, the choicest use of sapphires is in jewelry – with necklaces, beads, rings, bands etc.
