Fluorescence is the visible light some gemstones emit when exposed to invisible ultraviolet (UV) rays. We've described below the intensity and color of the gemstone's fluorescence under long-wave UV light (LWUV). Velvety Appearance: This gemstone exhibits an appearance that is classified as "velvety".Such an appearance results from very fine microscopic particles that scatter light, causing the coveted visual effect without negatively affecting the gem's transparency. Gemstones with a velvety appearance have little to no extinction, display a warm glow, and look very pleasing to the eye.
Therefore, velvety appearance is considered a highly sought-after trait in gemstones. The most prominent examples of gemstones coveted for their velvety appearance are the legendary Kashmir sapphires. This item is accompanied by the following gemological report. The accompanying GRS report authenticates this gemstone as a "Natural Sapphire" of "Sri Lanka" origin with a comment stating "No indication of thermal treatment".
