Many names have been given to this lovely gemstone. Yellow Sapphire is known in Hindi as Pukhraj stone or Pukhraj Ratna, and in Sanskrit as Peetamani.

If you're also enchanted by the beauty of this precious gemstone and want to possess it, keep the points mentioned below in mind, to make a good purchase. 

Available in many tones

From natural pastel light yellow through lemon yellow, deep yellow, and golden yellow, the colour yellow encompasses a wide spectrum of hues. The most sought-after Yellow Sapphire type, on the other hand, is a vivid yellow or canary yellow tone with superb colour consistency. Pukhraj is more desirable when the golden colour is brighter and purer.

Known for its loupe-clean clarity

Yellow sapphire is a Type II gemstone with fewer inclusions than other gemstones. However, eye-clean Pukhraj Ratna with no inclusions is highly rare, and it's possible that it was made in a lab. To determine the legitimacy of a gemstone, one can always get a gem lab certificate.


The principal source of high-quality Pukhraj stone is Sri Lanka. Yellow Sapphire stones quality can also be discovered in significant mines in Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, and Madagascar. The colour consistency, loupe-clean purity, and exceptional sheen of Ceylonese Yellow Sapphire have earned it worldwide praise.

Always keep the importance of cut in mind

One of the most important things which help in enhancing the attractiveness of the yellow sapphire stone is the cut. The facets on the gem's surface are referred to as cut. The oval, round, cushion, pear, heart, or emerald cut of yellow sapphire appears sparkling and allows light and colour to flow through at their best.

Treatments or enhancements used

Treatment refers to any human-controlled process that improves the beauty, durability, or value of a gemstone beyond cutting and polishing. Some gemstones are treated or enhanced in some way, thus this must be taken into account. Pushkaraj stone is not known to be processed or enhanced in any way. However, heat treatment is frequently employed to improve the colour and transparency of gemstones. It increases the gemstone's durability and stability, allowing it to withstand temperature changes.

Physical properties

Yellow Sapphire has a Moh's hardness of 9, which means it is extremely durable and stable. This makes it a very popular gemstone, and it's a great choice for engagement rings and other jewellery that can be worn every day.

Most suited metal

Only silver and gold metals should be used for wearing Pukhraj gemstone jewellery. Brass or Panchdhatu, platinum, or white gold can also be utilised in specific situations. A Yellow Sapphire ring should also be worn on the index finger of the working hand.

Astrological significance

The Yellow Sapphire gemstone is the most popular and important gemstone in the world of astrology and gemology. It has long been associated with professional success, wisdom, happy marriage, and strong willpower. Yellow sapphires have always been associated with the monarchy and the utmost luxury to which one aspires.

It helps in both personal and professional development. The precious Pukhraj stone assists the user by restoring prosperity and improving creativity and production in business and academia, as Jupiter is the god of wisdom and money. Apart from that, it improves memory and teaches the wearer to control their thoughts so that they can make better decisions.

Be mindful of these points and you will surely make a good purchase.
