Orange sapphire was once an obscure and undervalued gem, but this is no longer the case. With orange’s arrival as an important fashion color, gems such as spessartite garnet, imperial topaz, and orange sapphire have gained popularity.

Orange sapphires range from light pastel oranges to vivid reddish oranges. As a blend of red and yellow hues, orange sapphires may be colored by a combination of chromium (red) and iron (yellow) trace elements, or by exposure to natural radiation. Orange sapphires whose color stems from natural radiation may fade on exposure to heat or intense daylight.

Orange sapphires with pleasing color are rare in any size, so stones that are slightly or moderately included are still valuable gems. Orange sapphires are not mined in great quantities, so stones are not usually cut to standard sizes or proportions.

Orange sapphires are found in Australia, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Kenya, and Madagascar.
