I found these inclusions inside a Pinkish -Orange Sapphire. Are these inclusions indicated Be-diffusion?
Thanks

By themselves the inclusions don't indicate beryllium.
They do look a bit odd. The bottom photo seems to show a crystal which would "indicate" lack of heat treatment.
Are you sure it's corundum?
