Origin -Yellow Sapphire is mainly sourced from Ceylon (SriLanka), Myanmar (Burma), Thailand (Bangkok) and Madagascar. The best quality Yellow Sapphire stones originate in the mines of Ratnapura, located in Sri Lanka. The colour and sheen of the Yellow Sapphire stones coming from these mines is beyond comparable. These stones are highly priced due to their exceptional quality. Additionally, Ceylon Yellow Sapphire stones are best suited for astrological results.
Color -Yellow Sapphire stones comes in a wide variety of yellow shades that ranges from pale yellow to golden yellow to deep yellow. For astrology, a deeper and brighter Yellow Sapphire stone is recommended.
Clarity -Yellow Sapphire has natural needle-like rutile inclusions. Stones with fewer and smaller inclusions lead to better clarity and thus command a higher price. Yellow Sapphire with non visible inclusions are extremely rare and extremely expensive.
Cut -The cut and finish of the stone depicts the quality and sheen of the gemstone. A finely cut and faceted Yellow Sapphire stone would appear much brighter, illuminated and consistently colored than badly cut stone of same color and clarity. Therefore the more finished and smooth the gemstone, the more valuable it will have in the market.
Carat Weight -The price of Yellow Sapphire per carat increases exponentially with increase in carat weight. For example, the price per carat of 3-carat Yellow Sapphire stone is much higher than the price per carat of 1-carat Yellow Sapphire stone of the same quality. This is due to the rarity of good quality stones of bigger sizes.
Treatment -Yellow Sapphire is one of the most precious gemstones and a good quality Yellow Sapphire is rare to find. Additionally, untreated stones of high quality command a large premium. So, low quality stones are often treated to enhance their color and improve their clarity. But treated stones do not provide any astrological benefits as treatments alter the properties of the stone making them lose their powers. So, it is wise to buy a certified Yellow Sapphire stone with a laboratory report that mentions if any treatment is present. This certificate will also ensure the quality, origin, color and cut of the stone.
