You don't find many star sapphires like this awesome pink star from Burma. A picture perfect 6 point star on a translucent body and a radiant pink color. Certified by the AGTA as a natural pink star sapphire.
This star was heat treated before cabbing to approximately 1,000 C (1,850 F). This treatment removes a characteristic bluish color from the stone. This does not cause the red color to get darker, but when purplish star rubies are heated they often become a more pure red.
