Paparadah is famous and belongs to the noble sapphire family. Its English name is "padparadscha" (after transliteration is "Papalaccha"). This word is derived from the indigenous Sinhala language of Sri Lanka (origin), which represents the color of a red lotus, which is the most popular among Buddhists. The sacred color, so everyone will also call Paparazzi the lotus corundum. According to legend, at the beginning of the birth of Buddha, the foot stepped on seven steps and step by step, so Paparazzi was also a symbol of holiness and life. It is the only variant of corundum with its own name except ruby, which is also a treasure of Buddhism and is known as “Emperor Sapphire”.
