My mother bought a large ring in the '70's, and the name of the stone was Podparage, is it known by another name?

0 votes

The Podparage stone in her ring is a Deep Orange, oval in shape, and about the size of a US Quarter Dollar coin.  I believe it is from somewhere in the Middle East.  Is there another name for the stone?

Very good answer Julie Nutt. It is a rare colored sapphire. Orange by most accounts. It would be great to see a photo of this ring
