Lab Grown Square Cushion Padparadschas

Chatham created square cushion padparadscha sapphires

Padparadscha hues of Chatham Created PadparadschasPadparadschas are an eye-catching fancy variety of sapphire. They are appropriately named after the beautiful color of the lotus flower in Sri Lanka. Displaying a mixture of red, pink and orange, padparadscha sapphires are as colorful as the sunset. Chatham lab grown square cushion padparadschas rival some of the world’s most valuable mined padparadchas. Like all sapphires, padparadschas are doubly refractive and often exhibit pleochroism…the visible display of different body colors from different crystal directions in a gem. We stock Chatham created square cushion padparadschas in medium tone, but some light and dark tones may be available. Medium tone is considered top color. The medium tone Chatham created padparadschas have a nice balance between red, pink and orange. Light Chatham created padparadschas tend to have more pink than orange. But sometimes they are a light orange. Dark Chatham lab grown padparadschas are a rich pumpkin orange. Many would consider them orange sapphires rather than padparadschas. It’s the color rather than the tone that defines the “dark” category of Chatham lab grown square cushion padparadschas.

Chatham lab grown padparadschas are not cheap flame fusion or pulled sapphires. They grow in the natural crystal habit in a controlled environment. Because they are carefully grown, you can expect your Chatham created padparadscha to have gorgeous color and consistent quality. All Chatham created square cushion sapphires are gem quality with no inclusions visible to the naked eye.

Square Cushion Cut Size/Weight Chart

Pictures not actual size. Sapphire is denser than diamond, so it weighs more for the same physical size. Because carat is a measurement of weight, not size, it’s important to order colored stones based on physical size rather than carat weight.

Our Work In Madagascar

Changing lives for children and their families

We get our hands dirty!

In 2014 Michelle went to Madagascar to learn about the geology and mineralogy of the country. She was excited to visit some of the mining localities she learned about in her studies to be a Graduate Gemologist. However, it wasn't the sparkly colorful gems that caught her eye. Rather, it was the children...the little gems of Madagascar. Michelle founded in 2015. She visits Madagascar for about two months each year doing humanitarian projects, including clean water, sanitation, education and hygiene.
