From the vaults NHM (London).Far right Padparadscha 57.26 Ct Sri Lanka 1967. You cannot really capture the subtlety of the delicate balance of the pinks and oranges in this stone.

If that's 57 carats makes me wonder about the other sizes. Are these all sapph's? They must look stunning in the flesh.
