Long UV and Yellow sapphire

0 votes

Does a yellow Sapphire improves its colour with exposure to Long UV light ?Why ? Could it be detected by lab ? Is the effect permanent ? do other Sapphires respond to any other light in this way ?

Sapphire is to my knowledge very stable, and I am not aware of any color changes to UV exposure. Do you have any evidence to support a possibility of color change in UV light exposure?
