    Padparadscha
    Padparadscha sapphires are named after the Sanskrit for "lotus blossom", a reference to their exquisite and very rare colour which sits between pink and orange and can accurately be described as appearing like a tropical sunrise or a tropical sunset. Not only are they one of the rarest of sapphires, they are also one of the rarest gemstones produced by nature.

    帕德瑪剛玉
    帕德瑪剛玉以梵語 "蓮花"命名,緣於其優美且非常罕見的顏色,介於粉紅色和橙色之間,用熱帶的日出或日落來描述它再準確不過。它們不僅是最珍貴的剛玉之一,也是大自然賦予的最珍罕寶石之一。
