Djeva # 050608NR

We learned that the Djeva sapphire 050608NR "Lotus" was a limited-run experimental item, not made in bulk. It appears to be corundum doped with small amounts of chromium and iron. In larger cuts, the subtle ๐Ÿ‘ peach hue along the C axis contrasts beautifully with the light pink A axis, creating a gemstone with a very faint padparadscha color. This material is truly stunning!

We purchased two seperate lots of this experimental material from two old cutting houses in Thailand and India. The material was likely 20+ years old. When it's gone, it's likely gone for good.
